Research Questions

How does human trafficing still occur today without our notice?

I chose this question because the topic of sex trafficing is something that I am passionate about. About a year in a half ago, I went to Moldova where sex trafficing and prostitution is a huge problem. Girls are constantly giving themselves over to be sold or being taken by the mafia. Also, my best friend recently did a big project on sex trafficing and I was able to read her paper, it really sparked an interested in me about wanting to help stop the movement of sex trafficing. I want to start my research by talking to a family I know who lives in Moldova and find out how exactly many of these girls end up in sex trafficing. I also want to look at studies done on women who have been trafficied and find out how it has affected them. Lastly, I want to do some research on how I can help to end sex trafficing. Some of the problems I might encounter is finding interviews from actual people who have been trafficed, it seems to me that once you are in the business it is hard to get out. I think that some sub-questions that might pop up are things like how is this business kept so quiet here in America, what kind of psychological damage do these women have, and how many successful rehab facilities are actually available for the victims.
