Title: Analyzing the Canadian International Development Agency's (CIDA) anti-trafficking processes
Author: Schroeder, Gayle
Department: Department of Sociology and Anthropology
Advisor: Leach, Belinda
Abstract: This qualitative institutional ethnography thesis investigates how the Canadian International Development Agency (CIDA) coordinates anti-trafficking initiatives. This research begins by tracking the work coordination between CIDA and the Interdepartmental Working Group of Trafficking in Persons (IWGTIP) then moves to the analysis of how CIDA funds an international anti-trafficking project. The purpose of my research is to be able to clearly describe how CIDA's work on anti-trafficking initiatives is coordinated, often in mundane, normalized day-to-day tasks and understand how these initiatives impact trafficked women's lives. This research is important as institutional decision making often occurs outside of our everyday understanding and is invisible to the people CIDA seeks to help. By describing CIDA employee's activities, with the use of mapping, this research reveals the ruling relations that occur. This thesis demonstrates how governing processes organize government's work and people's lives, making it possible to uncover the consequences.
