This study utilized David Gil's framework to analyze the Trafficking Victims Protection Act of2000. Human trafficking is a pervasive social problem that is a form of modem day slavery. The Trafficking Victims Protection Act of 2000 was the first comprehensive U.S. policy addressing human trafficking. After 13 years and subsequent reauthorizations, the policy has made great strides in advancing its aim of prevention, protection, and prosecution. However, a general lack of understanding and awareness of human trafficking, limited resources, and disparities between federal and state legislation have created barriers to achieving the goals of the policy. This study examined the causes of human trafficking, the factors that make individuals vulnerable to human trafficking, the objectives and value premises of the Trafficking Victims Protections Act, and the strengths and weaknesses of the policy's three pronged strategy of prevention, protection, and prosecution.
