This essay must include a minimum of five sources. Three should be peer-reviewed sources, preferably from the APUS databases. From the library welcome page, click on Advanced Search at the bottom of the page and then check the “peer reviewed” sources box filter.

This video will hopefully clarify the term, “peer-reviewed”: You may use eBooks; however, as discussed in your textbook, books generally are not as current as peer-reviewed articles. You may also use primary sources (interviews, statistics, etc); however, these primary sources should be obtained from experts within that field. If you cannot find strong sources for your chosen topic, then change your topic. If you have a question about the validity of a source, please email me, or post your question to the open forum.

Note: Consider your audience as laymen in the field with only general knowledge of your topic.

Make sure to include the following sections in your essay:

an introduction and claim,
and a conclusion.

Within the body of your essay, make sure to include the following in any order:

support for your claim,
opposing or alternate views,
the strengths and weaknesses of your opponents’ claims,
and your rebuttals of their claims.

After you have written your essay, please make sure to revise the content of your essay. Lastly, be sure to edit your essay by checking grammar, format, and smaller technical details. Please make sure your essay is written in third person.

Human Trafficking must be stopped. There should be better laws, and sufficient funding put in place to fight Trafficking. It is a growing epidemic in the 21st century. Baker says that “some people, and even President Barack Obama, say sex trafficking is considered as modern-day slavery”. The Trafficking Victims Protection Act is Covered under the 13th Amendment in America that abolished slavery and even more disturbing that slavery is still considered a problem. Also, other countries have not adopted the laws, and regulations to protect trafficking victims. The biggest victims of Human trafficking are usually women and children, also men, and often leads to sexual exploitation, or forced labor, however, in other countries some people do it willingly. These victims are usually held against their will and used for financial gain amongst other inhumane acts. Human Trafficking can be eliminated by increasing funding and a change in laws.

The world of human trafficking has become a source of violations to human rights in today’s society. Logan et al says “Human trafficking, at its most basic level, is defined by the Trafficking Victims Protection Reauthorization Act of 2008 as (a) the recruitment, harboring, transporting, supplying, or obtaining a person for labor or services through the use of force, fraud, or coercion for the purpose of involuntary servitude or slavery; or (b) sex trafficking in which a commercial sex act is induced by force, fraud, or coercion, or in which the person induced to perform sex acts is under 18 years of age” ( pg 4 par 5 ). Since 2000 the Federal government has been actively involved with combating Human Trafficking, however is has met complex issues is solving the problem. The Trafficking Victims Protection Act of 2000 was implemented to combat international trafficking, but failed to address domestic trafficking. Strauss adds “This common misconception explains, in part, how domestic trafficking has, until recently, failed to gain serious attention from the federal government, and thus why it has been able to increase in the United States.”
