Overview

Trafficking and Prostitution Reconsidered: New Perspectives on Migration, Sex Work, and Human Rights / Edition 2

Since the highly acclaimed 2005 publication of the first edition of Trafficking and Prostitution Reconsidered, human trafficking has become virtually a household word and attention for the issue among researchers and policymakers has escalated. This new edition adds vitally important updates related to recent developments in law, policy, and international agreements as well as from new research. It looks more closely at narratives about sex trafficking and the growing interest amongst feminists, abolitionists, criminologists and legal experts, as well at new ways for developing action research projects with migrant women around the world.
