How Globalization Affects What’s for Brunch
The food we eat tells a complex story: not only of cultural values and family traditions but also of globalized trade and economics and a supply chain that transports raw ingredients and finished products from one part of the globe to another.
Despite the recent popularity of farm-to-table food and eating local, globalization maintains a profound influence on our diets—from the McFalafel on McDonald’s breakfast menus in Egypt to the avocado toasts in the United States.
Human Trafficking in the Global Era
is the trapping and exploitation of a person using deception, violence, or coercion. It generally takes three main forms: forced labor (which includes sex trafficking), forced marriage, and forced organ removal.
Forced labor also includes sex trafficking (in which individuals are made to perform nonconsensual commercial sex acts) and state-imposed forced labor (in which governments compel individuals to work—often in the military, in prisons, and on national infrastructure projects).
Human trafficking often begins with traffickers targeting their victims’ vulnerabilities, such as poverty and a desire for better work.
Few industries, if any, are entirely immune from human trafficking, and any individual is likely only a few degrees of separation from someone working in an exploitative system.
