dc.description.abstract This thesis examines the relationship between trafficking in persons and globalization. It first highlights and tracks the development of the trafficking in persons definition overtime and the difference between trafficking in persons and migrant smuggling, then moves on to describing the trafficking cycle of recruitment, transportation, and exploitation followed by the various reasons behind trafficking in persons. The thesis argues that a strong correlation exists amid globalization and the increase in trafficking in persons, and supports this argument by demonstrating the effect of the Soviet downfall, the introduction of economic liberalization, and the examination of the economic chain of market supply and demand; furthermore, case studies of two former Soviet republics, Moldova and Russia and their legal framework shall be examined. Finally, the thesis shall offer potential solutions towards combating trafficking in persons, highlighting the responsibilities of governments, civil society organizations, and other actors in this struggle to defend humanity. en_US
