A FRAMEWORK FOR A EURASIAN RELIGIONBASED SOCIAL MARKETING CAMPAIGN IN OPPOSITION TO HUMAN TRAFFICKING

Vernon Murray, Sherry Dingman, Julia Porter

Abstract


In theory, religion-based anti-human trafficking appeals may dissuade traffickers from engaging in certain offensive behaviors, and victims from engaging in certain risky behaviors. This discussion correlates religion, religiosity and human trafficking data to identify the potential for religion-based anti-trafficking social marketing campaigns in Eurasia. Based on a sample of sixty Eurasian nations, it indicates which religions (e.g. religious leaders) would be more or less likely to participate in antitrafficking prosecution, protection, prevention and partnership interventions.
