Abstract

In recent years, there has been an increase in the number of publications on human trafficking. Specifically, there has been extensive research on the poverty rates of a country in relation to incidents of human trafficking. However, this research project goes beyond the demographic of poverty, as it examines poverty and the inequality between men and women as related to human trafficking. Specifically, this research operationalized inequality through the demographic of literacy and examines inequality as related to human trafficking in a country.
