The overarching objective of the volume is to discuss and critique the legal regulation of human trafficking in national and transnational context. Specifically, discussion is needed not only with regard to the historical and philosophical points of departure for any criminalization of trafficking, but regarding the societal and social framework, the empirical dimension such as existing statistics in the area, and the need for more data. This work combines descriptive and normative analyses of the crime of trafficking in human beings from a cross-legal perspective. Notwithstanding the enhanced interest for human trafficking in politics, the public, and the media, a critical perspective such as the one pursued herewith has so far been largely absent. On this background, this approach allows for theoretical findings to be addressed by pointing out and elaborating different, interdisciplinary conflicts and inconsistencies (in the regulation) of human trafficking. By giving "shape" to the phenomenon, not least as it comes to life in the legal regulation, the editors and contributors can critically discuss it from various angles.
