MI315 Cultural Issues Associated with Sexual Exploitation and Human Trafficking 3 credits

Students will gain perspective of the cultural factors that allow for the proliferation of sexual exploitation and human trafficking, and will gain a basic understanding of culturally-specific approaches to combat it. There will be an emphasis on two basic culture-types: "Low-context" cultures such as the UK or USA, and "High-context" cultures such as Cambodia or Uganda. The course will highlight advocacy based on culturally appropriate sociological, geopolitical, and economic factors.
