Alex Trouteaud

Alex Trouteaud is an applied sociologist, who has studied sex trafficking and prostitution in the United States for over 10 years. He focuses on bringing the best available research insights into critical conversations around public policy, victim and survivor services, and social change. As a specialist in perpetrator accountability, Dr. Trouteaud works to address gaps in how we understand and respond to men who buy people for sex.

“The best researchers change their views when they encounter new evidence that challenges existing beliefs. I also believe this learned skill is a hallmark of good advocacy; guidance by fact, rather than just ideology.”
