The Role Which Geopolitics and Gender Plays in Moroccan Human Trafficking

Olivia Rose Jurcisin

Morocco has a disproportionately high rate of human trafficking compared to other parts of the world, but why? My aim is to identify the factors which contribute to this humanitarian crisis. In doing this, I examine global trends in trafficking in persons, migration trends in and out of Morocco, social dynamics surrounding sex, and the legal framework currently in place addressing trafficking.
