More than just victims: the truth about human trafficking

Author

  • Benjamin S Buckland

Abstract

Benjamin S Buckland argues that the language used to debate human trafficking can cloud the issue itself. Exploitation is only one side of the story. Deep-rooted socioeconomic and political reasons explain why some people fall into illegal or forced migration channels, and tackling these fundamentals requires a new language to acknowledge the agency and ambition of trafficked persons.
