About this book

This book investigates the links between human trafficking and national security in Southern Africa. Human trafficking violates borders, supports organised crime and corrupts border officials, and yet policymakers rarely view the persistence of human trafficking as a security issue. Adopting an expanded conceptualisation of security to encompass the individual as well as the state, Richard Obinna Iroanya lays the groundwork for understanding human trafficking as a security threat. He outlines the conditions and patterns of human trafficking globally before moving into detailed case studies of South Africa and Mozambique. Together, these case studies bring into focus the lives of the ‘hidden population’ in the region, with analysis and policy recommendations for combating a global phenomenon.

Reviews

“This is a layered analysis of human trafficking in Southern Africa contextualised through a well-documented cross section of human trafficking cases. Richard Iroanya effectively describes in detail the regional labour demand and supply factors that dictate human trafficking’s gendered outcomes. This book presents an articulate, well-organized argument for national security measures to address human trafficking within a global context.” (Jamaine Abidogun, Professor Emeritus, History Department, Missouri State University, USA)

“Richard Iroanya has provided an insightful analysis of one of the most inscrutable socio-economic and political problems of our time, at a time when the scourge of human trafficking appears to defy any effective policy response. Iroanya offers an innovative interpretation by conceptualising human trafficking as a security phenomenon at global, regional and national levels. This book will be a valuable reference material for scholars, students, policy makers and the general public.” (Samuel Ojo Oloruntoba, Senior Lecturer at the Thabo Mbeki African Leadership Institute, University of South Africa)
