This week concludes Dr. Mehlman-Orozco’s fall semester teaching for the Criminology, Law and Society Department at George Mason University. Her course, CRIM 308 Human Rights and Justice, included a unit on human trafficking. Students learned about methods of recruitment and control used by human traffickers and justice issues faced by survivors (e.g. erroneous criminalization and denial of services), as well as implementation gaps of anti-trafficking legislation.
The course instruction was well received, prompting messages of thanks from students:
Spring 2017, Dr. Mehlman-Orozco will be teaching CRIM 405 Law and Justice Around the World, which will include a unit on international human trafficking.
