Jocelyn Bell is a PhD candidate in Sociology, focusing on developing a relationship through participant observation with an anti-sex trafficking non-profit, non-governmental organization (NGO). This organization headquartered in New Delhi has offices throughout India and one in the United States. Jocelyn will supplement the participant observation with interviews with key anti-sex trafficking experts, professionals, and NGOs in New Delhi, Mumbai, and Kolkata. Her project explores how local, national, and transnational sociopolitical contexts each influence and shape the other as policy (here, anti-sex trafficking policy) is translated through each level and as NGOs create networks within and between each level.
