Gauging Public Opinion on Human Trafficking in Moldova and Ukraine: Employing Survey
Experimentation to Inform Effective Prevention and Awareness Programs
August 2013 – August 2015
The TCU research team collaborated on a National Institute of Justice grant that analyzed the intersection between the implementation of anti-trafficking laws in the US and US citizens’ knowledge about and attitudes towards human trafficking. Through the DFG Campus Challenge Research Grant, the TCU team built on this work, adapting the survey instrument first for use in Moldova and Ukraine, two countries in which USAID has made significant C-TIP investments. In Spring 2014, following the annexation of Crimea, the second research site was changed to Albania, a country in which USAID also has made significant C-TIP investments.
