Institute for European Studies Welcome to the Institute for European Studies, part of the Mario Einaudi Center for International Studies at Cornell University!

IES was among the first major university institutes to combine Eastern and Western European studies. Today we update this perspective by examining European countries as places of arrival and departure in multiple migration paths. The undergraduate minor in European Studies is administered by IES. IES is housed within the Mario Einaudi Center for International Studies at Cornell University.

Mission Statement

The Institute for European Studies (IES) advances scholarship and teaching by placing Europe in a global context and contributing to the training of a new generation of global citizens. IES is part of the Mario Einaudi Center for International Studies.

We pursue an understanding of multifaceted Europe’s contemporary relevance, as well as its historical trajectory in shaping, disseminating, and translating languages, ideas, images, policies, technologies, objects, information, food, and music.

IES was among the first major university institutes to combine Eastern and Western European studies. Today we update this perspective by examining European countries as places of arrival and departure in multiple migration paths. This perspective critically acknowledges Europe’s role in the history of both modernization and colonization of countries around the world, as well as its character as an immigrant continent.

CALL FOR BOOK CHAPTERS Human Trafficking: Global History and Global Perspectives Elisha J. Dung, Ph.D. and Augustine Avwunudiogba, Ph.D. (Editors) The United Nations Protocol to Prevent, Suppress and Punish Trafficking In Persons, Especially Women And Children, Supplementing The United Nations Convention Against Transnational Organized Crime define Human Trafficking as “the recruitment, transportation, transfer, harboring or receipt of persons, by means of the threat or use of force or other forms of coercion, of abduction, of fraud, of deception, of the abuse of power or of a position of vulnerability or of the giving or receiving of payments or benefits to achieve the consent of a person having control over another person, for the purpose of exploitation.” (Article 3, paragraph (a)). The US Department of State and many non-governmental and intergovernmental organizations consider human trafficking “modern slavery.” Although the number varies, it is believed that, worldwide, no less than 20 million people are being trafficked. These institutions and scholars around the world have noted that assessing the full scope of human trafficking is difficult because, in the first place, many governments do not know what to do with the victims and their perpetrators; secondly, the perpetrators often do not cooperate for fear of the law; and third, many of the victims not cooperate because of the stigma attached and, most importantly, the fear of retribution against them and their friends and family members. There is a tendency to think that Human Trafficking is a recent phenomenon. This is not the case despite fervent traditional media reporting or its sensationalism in social media. Human Trafficking, records show, is as old as any troubling or insidious social issue and or sociological issue. Perhaps the only discernible difference is the scope, the complexity, and the dimension of its occurrence in the last decade. While many of the victims are women and children, available evidence suggests that an increasing number of victims are men (as child laborers and child soldiers in war and conflict zones). Many of the women are used as commercial s*x workers (prostitutes). Others serve as s*x slaves or are forced into arranged and/or abusive marriages. And an increasing number of victims are also trafficked for the sole purpose of harvesting their organs. The purpose of this project is to systematically examine Human Trafficking around the world. It is for this reason that we are inviting scholars, members of the Civil Society, government and non-governmental organizations to contribute chapters to this book project. While we have made some suggestions, interested contributors may suggest topics if the said topic falls within the overall theme of this project: CONCEPTUAL AND THEORETICAL UNDERSTANDING • Theorizing Human Trafficking • Ancient and Modern Origins of Human Trafficking • Trafficking Networks • Religion, Culture, and Human Trafficking • Globalization/Globalizing Forces and Human Trafficking LEGISLATIONS AND CONVENTIONS • The United Nations and Human Trafficking • Domestic Legislation • The European Union and Human Trafficking • The Organization of American States and Human Trafficking • The African Union and Human Trafficking OVERVIEW OF REGIONAL UNDERCURRENTS • Asia (South Asia; East Asia; and Southeast Asia • East/Western Europe • The Middle East • Africa South of the Sahara • Human Trafficking in the Americas THE COST AND CONSEQUENCES • The Human Cost of Trafficking • The Economic Cost of Human Trafficking • The Mental and Psychology Injuries of Imprisonment • Women, Children, and Domestic Servitude • Child Soldiers in Conflict Situations THE GEOGRAPHY, DATA, AND GEOPOLITICAL FACTORS • Mapping the Routes – Ocean and Sea Routes • Trafficking Routes – Desert and Land Routes • Aggregating the Data – With the aid of GIS • The Problems and challenging of Data Collection • The Cold War and the Post-9/11 Environment SUBMISSION INSTRUCTIONS: 1. Please submit a 300-350-word abstract plus a 150-250-word biography along with your official contact information by 30 June 2020 to [email protected] and please Cc the coeditor at [email protected] (Abstracts & Manuscripts should be submitted in English). 2.
