This unique volume combines chapters containing a multidisciplinary academic analyysis of the causes of the continued existence of contemporary forms of slavery, such as globalization, poverty and migration with specialist empirical chapters on specific forms of contemporary slavery such as trafficking, domestic migrant workers, bonded labour and child labour in Asia, Latin America and Africa. It provides relevant policy recommendations, such as respect for victims' rights ans assesses longer term strategies for change, including Fair Trade, reparations for past slavery, the Tobin tax and Development ethics. The book aims to raise awareness about the complexity of contemporary slavery and it promotes looking at trafficking, bonded labour, child labour and abuse of domestic migrant workers under the heading of slavery, in order to empower campaigns to eradicate slavery once and for all. Even where international and national laws are in place, compliance is lacking and economic pressures leave poor people vulnerable to current forms of slavery.
