Examines the socio-economic exploitation that underpins human trafficking

‘Human Trafficking’ is a term that does little to convey the myriad acts that underpin the exploitation of men, women and children across the world. Despite legislative developments and the introduction of national and international interventions, definitions of this form of exploitation, estimates of its extent and nature, and responses to victims and perpetrators have thus far been limited. Furthermore, aspirations to prioritise a human rights model within a wider discourse of vulnerable people on the move are frequently overtaken by law enforcement and border control priorities.
