Human Trafficking, Human Security, and the Balkans

Overview

In the aftermath of four Yugoslav wars, reconstruction efforts in South Eastern Europe have devoted relatively limited attention to dimensions of human security that enhance protections for the region's most vulnerable populations. Consequently, South Eastern Europe, and especially the Western Balkan region, has emerged as a nexus point in human trafficking.

Overview

In the aftermath of four Yugoslav wars, reconstruction efforts in South Eastern Europe have devoted relatively limited attention to dimensions of human security that enhance protections for the region's most vulnerable populations. Consequently, South Eastern Europe, and especially the Western Balkan region, has emerged as a nexus point in human trafficking. This volume assembles leading scholars and practitioners to analyze and offer solutions to this challenge. The contributors explore the economic dynamics of human trafficking in an era of globalization, the effectiveness of international and transnational policies and practice, the impact of peacekeeping forces, and the emergence of national and regional action plans in the Western Balkans and in South Eastern Europe. Finally, they consider the nature and ramifications of the gap between human security rhetoric and institutional policy steps against human trafficking.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

“This impressive volume, which brings together a broad range of scholars and practitioners, is one of the first and only books on human trafficking trends and dynamics in the Balkans. It helps to fill an important gap on an extremely timely issue, and should be of great interest to both academic and policy audiences.”
--Peter Andreas, coauthor of Policing the Globe

“Policy makers and scholars will find this edited volume fills a serious gap in our understanding of this phenomenon.  This book will go far in advancing a complex understanding of the security implications of human rights abuse.  Let's hope the international community pays attention; the lessons discussed in this book are relevant for today's conflicts in Iraq and Afghanistan.”
--Sarah E. Mendelson, author, Barracks and Brothels: Peacekeepers and Human Trafficking in the Balkans

"Although a regional collection, the analysis has international relevance . . .  Highly recommended."
--Choice
