The Nexus Between Covid-19 and Human Trafficking: Jeanne Christensen rsm.

 

U.S. Catholic Sisters Against Human Trafficking’s Advocacy Committee has been exploring, writing about the nexus of human trafficking, and other social justice issues. Having just completed a paper on the nexus between gender and human trafficking, Jeanne Christensen thought, “What is the nexus between human trafficking and Covid-19?”

We all know the challenges and tragedy of Covid-19, but we cannot know the tragedy of human trafficking because we do not experience it.  If we did, we would experience either force, fraud or coercion – or possibly more than one of these three determinants of whether a person is a victim of human trafficking.
