Human trafficking is considered modern-day slavery. However, there is rarely any attention to the economic underpinnings of slavery. Instead, governments and human rights advocates pay attention to criminal behaviors that are viewed as aberrations from a just global economic system. The introduction provides an overview of the current antitrafficking approach and the lack of a critical economic lens. There is also an introduction to the economic dimensions of trafficking that should be considered in antitrafficking efforts. There is a summary of the political economy of human and sex trafficking.
