What is behind migrant smuggling?

In recent years there have been few topics garnering as much widespread interest as human trafficking and migrant smuggling. These issues have attracted the attention of Governments, NGOs, International Organizations, the media as well as academia. While this attention tends to provoke vivid discussions in political circles, social networks and other media platforms, there is little solid understanding of these crimes, the difference between them and their implications. To that end, #Education4Justice developed a series of Human Trafficking and Migrant Smuggling modules for lecturers across the world.
