Reviews

'This cutting edge book illustrates the contested nature of trafficking in persons and its implications for policy-making. It calls for better attention for the prevention of trafficking and acknowledges the existence of forced labour in all industries and domestic settings. It boldly takes trafficking studies away from narrow debates on the best way to protect sex workers, to restrict migration, or to punish criminal gangs into the debate on severe human rights violations and the structural pressures that lead to vulnerability to exploitation of migrants.' - Dr Christien van den Anker, School of Politics, University of the West of England, UK
