When comparing the United States and Vietnam, what factors, varying from legal enforcements to the overall economic well-being, appear to contribute the most to measurable improvement in incidences and prosecution of human trafficking?

Abstract or project description

This research explores many components that seem to be driving forces of what causes human trafficking to be more severe in Vietnam than in the United States. The majority of nations have demonstrated their efforts when enacting their own versions of laws with the intentions of eliminating trafficking. Although those established laws in each country punish individuals for the same offenses, they are not all equally effective. In this report, I look closely at the countries of Vietnam and the United States specifically, and compare its laws as well as the effectiveness of their enforcement. An incorporation of evidence from true human experiences and enforcement statistics (web resources), demonstrates how compared to America, Vietnam is more corrupted in general traffic polices and the overall government. Not only through government, the geographical makeup of each country also plays a role into the extremity of the human trafficking presence. (more specific taking a side on how the geography concludes, like does US or Vietnam do better). After thoroughly analyzing and comparing the two nations, I have found that the laws are severely under-enforced and it is much more difficult to collect accurate data on effective ways to mitigate trafficking in Vietnam versus the United States. Human trafficking though, still is a major issue even in America and for the whole world itself and should be considered thoughtfully as a threat to humanity.
