About this book


This book is an international, comprehensive reference tool in the field of trafficking in people and slavery. It is both at the forefront of research and of practice. It provides a high level, systematic and comprehensive book due to its breadth of entries from leading experts, to international organisations, and to NGOs on the ground, covering everything from historical perspectives to cutting edge topics. This handbook is truly international, spanning the entire globe, with contributions from actively engaged scholars and practitioners on virtually every continent (e.g., Europe, North America, Australia, Africa, Asia, and South America). This book also covers problematic areas that cannot be found in other reference works.

4. Trafficking in Persons and Response Mechanisms

5. Organizational Profiles
