Human TraffickingHandbook: Recognising Trafficking and Modern-Day Slavery in the UK

The Human Trafficking Handbook, edited and sold by NexisLexis, is an essential anthology of opinion and analysis written by experienced, passionate professionals who play a vital role in today’s fight against modern-day slavery.

This unique collection of original essays seeks to meet that need by bringing together for the first time expert perspectives from a wide range of key participants in the struggle against human trafficking in the United Kingdom, in order to help people around the world, but firstly in United Kingdom, gain greater knowledge of the issue and the relevant laws in place.

Edited and collated by award-winning human rights barrister Parosha Chandran, this precedent-setting text assembles the views of specialist lawyers, local authorities, doctors, non-governmental organisations, police officers and prosecutors as it surveys the major themes of human trafficking, ranging from domestic servitude to sexual and labour exploitation, and also carefully examines the impact of trafficking upon its victims.

Through this book, expert legal and voluntary sector contributors explore and explain the identification, support, protection and compensation of trafficking victims – both adult and child – and law enforcement officials offer an exclusive insight into the investigation and prosecution of traffickers. Moreover, there are dedicated chapters on trafficking in Scotland and Northern Ireland completes a UK-wide examination of the issue.

Having read this book, Sir Nicolas Bratza, judge in European Court of Human Rights said: ʺThe picture painted by the book illustrates the stark reality that, despite the important advances which have been made in the United Kingdom in recent years, much remains to be done to respond more effectively to the threat and consequences of human trafficking, both of which are still disturbingly real. This excellent Handbook will not only contribute to a better understanding of the challenges presented by human trafficking but it will become an indispensable resource for all concerned with combating this pernicious trade.ʺ
