Program Description:

SIT Study Abroad Netherlands: Human Trafficking, Sex Trade, & Modern Slavery in Europe (Summer)

 

Examine the broad and diverse areas of human trafficking—which occurs in a wide range of sectors—and the sex trade, including the relationship between sex workers and their broader societies.

 

OVERVIEW

Examine the complex and multifaceted issues of human trafficking and sex trades. We consider human trafficking to be part of the backlash against decolonizing forces and the inevitable byproduct of late-stage, global capitalism. You will study the underlying historical events and theoretical worldviews that cast some people as chattel. You will also learn to think critically about the myriad types of sex work and the relationship between sex workers and their broader societies. Transactional sex, peep shows, camming, trans and queer phone banks, pornography, even the sale of sex toys can be considered sex work. While we look at multiple perspectives during the program, we acknowledge that sex workers are complex, multifaceted actors with agency who deserve respect. We can disagree on many issues, we will not infantilize, denigrate or in any way question the fundamental humanity of the people who take part in sex work.
