The Criminology Academy

Jan 31 2022 • 51 mins


Hi! If you're new, welcome! If you're not, welcome back! This week we spoke with Joan Reid who is a professor in the Depart of Criminology at the University of South Florida. We discuss a truly heartbreaking topic: human trafficking, specifically the exploitation of children. Joan tells us generally what human trafficking is and what it looks like, we then discuss a paper she co-authored, and we then talk about the dark web.

Joan is the author of two books, Human Trafficking: Contexts and Connections to Conventional Crime and A Girls’ Pathway to Prostitution: Linking Caregiver Adversity to Child Susceptibility. In addition, she has published in journals such as Justice Quarterly, Sexual Abuse, and Child Maltreatment.  You can find Joan on Twitter @JAReid2016
