1.      Over the past two decades there has been horrendous massacres perpetrated by students at school premises. These massacres, known as school shootings, haven been predominantly analyzed by employing psychological approaches. Please offer a sociological interpretation on school shootings by explaining why school shooters commit violent actions against teachers and classmates as a form of retrieving their masculinity.

2.      Human trafficking constitutes one of the fundamental challenges of our world. It affects all regions and countries and constitutes a grave violation of human rights. The trafficking of women, children and men have led to many suffering, atrocities, inhuman and tragic circumstances within and across borders. International agencies underscore the global nature of human trafficking. Examine the human trafficking phenomenon through sociological perspectives as well as the rights-based approaches to gain insights of the reasons underlying trafficking, the modus operandi of human traffickers and the consequences on human trafficking victims.
