Modern Slavery and Human Trafficking

Throughout the world, vulnerable subjects are being deceived into entering an abusive journey, in the organ trade, exploitative labour business, and forced criminality - and their lives will never be the same.

This book traces the journey of victims/survivors of modern slavery and human trafficking into and within the UK, from recruitment to representation to (re)integration. Using global comparative case studies, it discusses recruitment tactics and demand, prevention in supply chains, issues with effective legal protection and care services, vulnerability to re-trafficking and the ideological misrepresentation of vulnerable migrants and victims/survivors in media, the film industry, legislation, and more.

Rooted in diverse practitioner experience, disciplines and empirical research, this book bridges the experience-research-practice-policy gap by bringing to the fore survivors’ voices. In doing so, it offers crucial suggestions for better public awareness, policies and practices that will impact interventions in the UK and beyond.

Carole Murphy is Associate Professor in Criminology and Sociology and Deputy Director of the Bakhita Centre for Research on Slavery, Exploitation and Abuse at St Mary’s University, London.

Runa Lazzarino is Postdoctoral Researcher in the Research Centre for Transcultural Studies in Health at Middlesex University, London.
