Human trafficking is widely considered to be the fastest growing branch of trafficking. As this important book reveals, it has moved rapidly up the agenda of states and international organisations since the early-1990s, not only because of this growth, but also as its implications for security and human rights have become clearer.

This fascinating study by international experts provides original research findings on human trafficking, with particular reference to Europe, South-East Asia and Australia. A major focus is on why and how many states and organisations act in ways that undermine trafficked victims' rights, as part of 'quadruple victimisation'. It compares and contrasts policies and suggests which seem to work best and why. The contributors also advocate radical new approaches that most states and other formal organisations appear loath to introduce, for reasons that are explored in this unique book.

This must-read book will appeal to policymakers as well as advanced undergraduate and postgraduate students in the fields of criminology, human rights law, gender studies, political science and international studies.

Contributors: J. Debeljak, L. Holmes, S. Kneebone, Z. Lasocik, K. Leong, S. Milivojevic, S. Schwandner-Sievers, M. Segrave, O. Simic, S. Yea

Review:

'Trafficking and Human Rights makes an important contribution to the ongoing debate about key issues in the global and national response to trafficking in persons.'
--Benjamin Perrin, Asian Criminology

'This well researched volume not only makes valuable contributions to the literature on human trafficking, but also clearly states its own limitations, such as a heavy emphasis on the trafficking of women and limited geographical coverage. Nevertheless, it deserves to be widely read among academics, scholars, students and policy makers interested in issues of human security, international studies, criminology and gender studies. I look forward to the publication of future work by Holmes and the other brilliant contributors to this volume.'
--South East Asia Research
