No. 16 (2021): Special Issue - Trafficking in Minors
This Special Issue of Anti-Trafficking Review focuses on the phenomenon of trafficking in minors in different contexts and from a variety of perspectives. These include its relationship to child labour and adolescent migration, online sexual exploitation, and commercial gestational surrogacy, as well as lesser-known manifestations, such as trafficking of children for exploitation in criminal activities. Other contributions analyse media reports and NGO campaigns and interventions that aim to draw attention to the problem. Contributors emphasise that policies and interventions against child trafficking need to prioritise measures that address the underlying socio-economic and political root causes of the phenomenon – those related to development, access to education, healthcare, decent work, and migration regimes.
