My research interests focus on the causes and aspects of social suffering and violence in a global context which I examine through the lenses of human trafficking; an interest that has evolved from my exploration of migration to a broadly defined voluntary and forced movement of people around the globe. My conceptualizing of this phenomenon began with an historical enquiry and developed into an interdisciplinary approach within the context of both the international and global. My approach in studying and teaching about trafficking in human beings is strongly shaped by the post-colonial and neoliberal theory of profit being the driving force dividing the Global North and the Global South.
