This book provides a short, comprehensive, critical analysis of trafficking in human beings. Despite the size and scope of this criminal activity, there remains a need for an accurate, objective, contemporary examination of a threat when the nature of this crime and the strategies developed to counter it are fluid. Trafficking harms not only the lives of those trafficked but equally families and communities, as well as national economies and social cohesion. As this crime cross-cuts the spectrum of social science disciplines and fields of study, and together with its increasing exposure in the media, has led to a sharp increase in interest in the topic within the academic community and amongst policy makers, criminal justice practitioners and the wider public. This book draws on current research and the authors' expert knowledge and insight into current counter-trafficking practice to provide a critical analysis of the crime and strategies to counter its prevalence. .
