A content analysis study on the factors and policies of human trafficking in the United States

Human trafficking is not a crime that only happens in other countries, it is something real and existing even in the United States. People need to know that human trafficking is not a hidden crime, but instead a real crime occurring in every part of the United States. The purpose of this study is to explore and analyze the previous research on the main factors of human trafficking and the policies related to human trafficking in the United States. This paper will take a qualitative content analysis approach to analyze various research studies concerning human trafficking in the United States. It will look at different studies conducted in the United Studies and review at their findings to determine the main factors behind human trafficking and the effectiveness of policies dealing with human trafficking in the United States. Critical issues identified during the research process include federal policies, current data on human trafficking, existing programs combatting human trafficking, and what the United States needs. After discovering some of the main factors behind human trafficking and the effectiveness of human trafficking policies in the United States, the researcher offers three recommendations to help solve the issue. The first recommendation is for the United States to look into building more organizations such as the Laboratory to Combat Human Trafficking (LCHT). LCHT is a good example of how collaborations between community service providers, academics, activists, law enforcement, survivors, and volunteers can greatly improve the way we combat human trafficking. The second recommendation is to properly train law enforcement officials in the United States to recognize the warning signs of human trafficking and know how to properly respond to human trafficking. The third recommendation to combat human trafficking is to build community awareness and advocacy for human trafficking. All of these recommendations will help to combat human trafficking in the United States.
