Sandy Gates '09, of Bethel, Vermont, recently participated in a seminar
in Thailand, run by the Prevent Human Trafficking Institute. She is studying in
Thailand through the International Student Exchange Program (ISEP) and received
funding for participating in the study program from the global studies
department's Fred Kahrs Award.
According to the institute's Web site, the seminar "offers unique access to some of Southeast Asia's pre-eminent scholars, activists, organizers and government officials working at the forefront of the global anti-trafficking movement." Gates, a global studies major, plans to continue study of this topic
as her senior thesis.
