Abstract

The Problem. This article addresses the global problem of human trafficking and provides an exploratory analysis of the need for, and possible approaches to, integrating the principles of Human Resource Development (HRD) to support a solution. The Solution. The solution focuses on the integration of HRD practices in the prevention of human trafficking. The origin of human trafficking, the history of its existence, definitions, and legislative discourse are reviewed. More precisely, the notion of National HRD (NHRD) and the connection to community development is explored within the context of the human trafficking phenomenon. The Stakeholders. The key stakeholders this article seeks to inform are service providers, nongovernmental organizations, community development and HRD practitioners, and first responders. Implications for HRD practice, theory and research, as well as recommendations for future research conclude this article.
