Overview

The transatlantic slave trade may have been abolished two hundred years ago but human trafficking persists in various forms, and it remains an important topic for scholarly debate, empirical research and human rights advocacy today. This book makes an important contribution to this debate. Written by leading academics in the fields of criminology, sociology, social anthropology, politics, law and human rights, it provides an authoritative and critical account of the problem of, and responses, to global human trade. By drawing on historical, methodological and up-to-date empirical material on human trafficking in regions including Africa, Central Asia, Eastern Europe and Australia, this book examines the key issues and debates on: the changing nature, pattern and processes of human trafficking. the links between trafficking and other forms of irregular migration and exploitation. the controversies surrounding state-sponsored responses to trafficked persons and those considered as 'non-citizens'.
