Human Trafficking Intervention and Migration Management in Nigeria

Research Theme: Consequences of Migration in Sending and Receiving Areas
Location: Federal Republic of Nigeria
Funding: NSF Doctoral Dissertation Improvement Grant (Stacey Vanderhurst)

This project, which seeks to identify connections between human trafficking and migration, is part of Smith’s collection of work studying the effects of migration on the sexual behavior of young rural-urban migrants in Nigeria. Working with his doctoral student, this project will be conducted over 12 months in Nigeria, using the ethnographic methods of participant observation, self-reporting, and formal and informal interviews.
