Abstract

This research will identify patterns of trafficking in humans. This will be an inclusive study of all forms of buying and selling human beings as commodities. The patterns will be formulated through a social network analysis, which represents a number of ways of quantifying social relations (buying and selling) within a finite set of social actors. The social actors in a social network analysis are not limited to individuals; the may be organizations, social institutions, nation states, corporations, or any definable social system. For this study the actors will be the nation states. Findings will allow for a clear, visible pattern of where individuals are purchased from and their destination. Findings conclude the notion that the poorer countries supply the wealthy countries is not shown, but the patterns of trade are based on geographical location of nations.
