The Human Trafficking Project (HTP) and Human Trafficking Students (HTS) are partnering to help increase student engagement in raising awareness of modern slavery by jointly publishing the HTS Series as regular contributions on the HTP site. Moving beyond the horror of the story of modern slaves, the HTS Series publishes critical engagement pieces that emanate first and foremost from student interest.
The Series is peer reviewed in a way that supports new writers, posts high quality submissions, and enables the creation of a disciplined and diverse community-of-practice. Posts will range from creative writing and poetry to policy reviews and quantitative assessments.
HTS exists to advocate for further academic take-up of the topics of modern slavery and human trafficking. We also believe that students are and will be playing a central role in bringing these topics to light. To that end, we work hard and engage our network to support students in conceiving of, developing, editing and sharing their blog posts.
The first HTS piece will be published on 8/18/2010.
