Combating Human Trafficking Gaps in Policy and Law by Veerendra Mishra

Combating Human Trafficking Gaps in Policy and Law


Combating Human Trafficking Gaps in Policy and Law by Veerendra Mishra

This book demystifies the term trafficking with a view to properly understand its trends, dimensions, and gaps in policy and law that need to be plugged. Combating Human Trafficking aims to initiate fresh discussion on human trafficking, and offers recommendations to curb organized international crime. It explores varied dimensions of the crime and offers further classification to help effectively address the problem. It presents a new perspective of identifying assimilative interaction between social and criminal justice systems, the progressive growth in socio-criminal legislations, and the universal demand of multi-agency approach to combat trafficking. Through the Brute Mute theory, it gives an illustrative description of micro- and macro-governance, and offers a global perspective to the problem with examples and case studies.


[The book] aims to initiate fresh discussion on human trafficking along with recommendations to curb organized international crime...presents a new perspective of identifying assimilative interaction between social and criminal justice systems.... Indeed an exhaustive work, which will be valuable to scholars, researchers and government officials involved in the process. -- USI Journal, October - December 2015
