The Trafficking of Persons

National and International Responses

Kimberly A. McCabe

Over 700,000 people are trafficked across international borders every year. Of those, the U.S. Department of State estimates that between 14,500 and 17,500 are trafficked into the United States. Today, the U.S. and other nations are beginning to recognize the magnitude of the problem and attempt to address the victimization caused by human trafficking. This book investigates the types of human trafficking, and discusses U.S. and international responses to combat and end all forms of this criminal activity. With discussion-provoking questions at the end of each chapter and specific examples of trafficking activity, this book is appropriate for criminology courses, classes dedicated to victims and/or child abuse, and classes focused around the themes of international crime and international law.
