Explain how has human trafficking affected homeland security?

1. Choose your topic for your thesis paper. – This should be written in a question format. Example: How has human trafficking affected Homeland Security?

2. Once you have your topic, choose five subtopics (your subtopics will be things that affect your topic that you would like to evaluate). Example: Harboring Countries, Funding Sources for Terrorist Activities, the Influence of Drugs, Laws & Politics, and Underground Smuggling.

i. Subtopic one: Current U.S. Policy on Human Trafficking

ii. Subtopic two: Reasons Behind Human Trafficking

iii. Subtopic three: Trafficking is Growing Worldwide

iv. Subtopic four: Tracking Victims / Crime Trends

v. Subtopic five: Combating Sex trafficking, labor trafficking, and child trafficking

3. Last, write your why, how, consequences, and theoretical perspective on the topic (this can be one-two sentences)

i. Why: Human trafficking is a grim problem that so many know so little about. Human trafficking falls directly under the Department of Homeland Security.

ii. How? The more American citizens know, the greater assets we will all be in combating human trafficking.

iii. Consequences: If we do not address human trafficking, than it will keep happening and it’ll be deemed an acceptable function in society, instead of the federal crime it is.

iv. Theoretical perspective (this will be like a rough draft thesis statement): The effect of human trafficking on homeland security can be explored through U.S. Policy, underlying reasoning, growth worldwide, tracking crime trends, combating sex trafficking, combating labor trafficking, and combating child trafficking.
