Understanding and Characterizing Labor Trafficking Among U.S. Citizen Victims

People in this story

Northeastern School of Criminology and Criminal Justice Director Amy Farrell, and doctoral student Stephen Abeyta, in collaboration with faculty from John Jay and UMass Lowell, examined labor trafficking among U.S. Citizens, an area where research is often lacking. The research was funded by the National Institute of Justice and utilized innovative methodologies to identify and understand the experiences of victims who do not commonly come to the attention of law enforcement or service providers. 

By cultivating a deeper and more comprehensive understanding of the issue and its victims, this research will help communities address the complexities of this harmful form of victimization.
