Human Trafficking and Modern Slavery are topics of near constant discussion in the media. But what is human trafficking? How can we legally define modern slavery?  In this module you will examines the development of law in the area of human trafficking and modern slavery from a legal, theoretical and comparative perspective. You will consider the complex history of counter-trafficking legislation, critiques the limitations of current counter-trafficking measures and discusses its problems, e.g. the conflation of prostitution and trafficking, the complex victim category and alternative responses to human trafficking.
