Summary

"This volume aims to deepen understanding of the social, economic and political contexts of human trafficking: the recruitment and transportation of human beings through deception and coercion for the purposes of exploitation. Upon this basis, the volume considers whether an understanding of these underlying factors - what may be called 'structural' - can inform policy discussion as well as strategic interventions regarding the fight against trafficking. The volume includes experts with great experience of trafficking issues and it also gives a voice to 'critical' views which argue that trafficking challenges are inseparable from broader debates about human rights and migration. Indeed, whilst the idea of protecting the human rights of victims is uppermost, protecting the human rights of people to seek a living and make decisions for themselves regarding migration is also important. The volume thus avoids simplifying women as disempowered victims."--BOOK JACKET.
