Spanish Language, Source Country Research (Contractor)

Polaris seeks one to two candidates to conduct research in Spanish, and provide some translation for key research findings for the Disruption Strategies team. The Team leads Polaris’ disruption campaigns designed to attack the systems in place that enable human trafficking and cause disruption at the systemic level so as to create sustainable, lasting change. As we expand to focus on Sex Trafficking from Latin America (STLA), we are broadening our research to include source country materials. In 2018 Polaris will seek to enhance the amount of culturally and linguistically appropriate resources available to potential victims of trafficking in commercial front brothels. The research should examine source country migration patterns, economic opportunities and how that affects perceptions of labor rights, trafficking and gender-based violence related crimes in source countries, and the criminal justice process.

Research and Report Associate (Contractor)

Polaris seeks one to two candidates to conduct open source research and produce data reports based on collected intelligence for its Disruption Strategies and Data Analysis Programs. The Disruption Strategies program is designed to attack the systems in place that enable human trafficking and cause disruption at the systemic level so as to create sustainable, lasting change. The Data Analysis Program has the exciting task of utilizing data to inform and direct our approach to the fight against human trafficking with the ultimate end-goal of eradicating the crime of modern day slavery. Initial research into commercial front trafficking businesses indicate that they have a loose, organized network structure. There may be several hundred networks throughout the country. In order to gain a deeper strategic understanding of existing data, we are looking to generate a report on all available open source data on larger networks. Reports will include all available data, including court records, newspaper articles, recruitment, and other open source information.
