9780415711098: Global Human Trafficking: Critical Issues and Contexts (Global Issues in Crime and Justice)

Human trafficking has moved from relative obscurity to a major area of research, policy and teaching over the past ten years. Research has sprung from criminology, public policy, women’s and gender studies, sociology, anthropology, and law, but has been somewhat hindered by the failure of scholars to engage beyond their own disciplines and favoured methodologies. Recent research has begun to improve efforts to understand the causes of the problem, the experiences of victims, policy efforts, and their consequences in specific cultural and historical contexts.

Global Human Trafficking: Critical issues and contexts foregrounds recent empirical work on human trafficking from an interdisciplinary, critical perspective. The collection includes classroom-friendly features, such as introductory chapters that provide essential background for understanding the trafficking literature, textboxes explaining key concepts, discussion questions for each chapter, and lists of additional resources, including films, websites, and additional readings for each chapter.

The authors include both eminent and emerging scholars from around the world, drawn from law, anthropology, criminology, sociology, cultural studies, and political science and the book will be useful for undergraduate and graduate courses in these areas, as well as for scholars interested in trafficking.

Molly Dragiewicz is Associate Professor in the School of Justice, Faculty of Law at Queensland University of Technology in Brisbane, Australia. Dr. Dragiewicz is author of Equality with a vengeance: Men’s rights groups, battered women, and antifeminist backlash.

Review:

‘Global Human Trafficking is a wonderful contribution to the research literature on trafficking. While most writing on the topic has been evidence-thin or anecdotal, this book contains important empirical studies of various dimensions of trafficking. And departing from the usual exclusive focus on sex trafficking, the contributors examine labor and organ trafficking as well. The book shows how trafficking can be much more complex and variegated than the monolithic and sensationalized image so common in the media and in policymaking throughout the world.’

Ronald Weitzer, Professor of Sociology, George Washington University, USA

Global Human Trafficking is an essential resource for anyone interested in the study of human trafficking and anti-trafficking policies and practices. It challenges common assumptions about the problem by showcasing rich empirical studies from the global North and South and by providing critical insights into key debates about what is to be done about trafficking. An excellent volume on one of the most important socio-criminological topics of our time.’

Maggy Lee, Professor of Criminology, Department of Sociology, University of Hong Kong, Hong Kong
