Human Trafficking and Child Labor: What Role(s) Do International Organizations Play?
Presented by the Wagner Student Alliance for Africa (WSAFA) and the Black Student Association (BSA)

Human trafficking is an ongoing reality in many parts of the world, especially in Africa.  A growing concern is child labor/trafficking, especially in the agricultural sector. Today, child trafficking is a phenomenon that persists and is seen in various parts of the continent; from Benin to Burkina Faso; and in countries such as Nigeria and South Africa, children are too often trafficked and exploited enabling premature labor. This program seeks to enlighten attendees on this global phenomenon, as tackling human trafficking is a global issue that needs to be addressed. It for one facilitates the illegal movement of people across borders and offers a ready source of income for organized crime groups and even terrorists. Secondly, most interventions do not seem to target the root causes and have done nothing to stop and/or minimize human trafficking. This lecture, followed by a Q&A session, will be given by Dr. Suzanne Stutman, author of All the Power Rests with You.
