Abstract

Human trafficking, defined as the recruitment, transport or receipt of individuals for the purpose of exploitation, is perhaps the most negative phenomenon linked to globalisation. The link between migration and human trafficking is close, although domestic trafficking can and does occur. This chapter looks at human trafficking taking globalisation into account. It examines the questions of the definition and understanding of trafficking, as well as exploring the difficulties of establishing good quantitative measures of the extent of trafficking, and concludes with a look at the interactions between counter-trafficking efforts and border control.
