Human Trafficking Reconsidered is a unique collection of original essays that investigates the issue of sex and labor trafficking. With contributions from around the world this book utilizes a wide range of styles and approaches including historical works, legal approaches, and ethnographic studies. The book has three main objectives: (1) to examine the definition of trafficking; (2) to analyze the effectiveness of current anti-trafficking regimes; and (3) to discuss the challenges faced by anti-trafficking advocates on the ground. The volume reconsiders the problem of human trafficking by rethinking the zealous focus on sex work and by drawing on the current structural regimes that render people legally vulnerable to abuse. This analysis will provide students, activists, and scholars with the critical tools necessary to begin envisioning new solutions to deal with the problem of human trafficking.
