From the Bookshelves: Human Trafficking Law and Policy by Bridgette Carr, Anne Milgram, Kathleen Kim, Stephen Warnath
Human Trafficking Law and Policy, for the first time brings together the case law, legislation and scholarship that comprise domestic and international human trafficking law. Organized to reflect the cross-section of criminal justice, civil and human rights, immigration and international law that frames human trafficking law and policy, this book includes chapters on the Trafficking Victims Protection Act and its doctrinal history, the Palermo Protocol, as well as the implementation and interpretation of human trafficking laws in the criminal, civil and immigration contexts. Compiled by a team of authors whose combined expertise includes experience criminally prosecuting and civilly litigating human trafficking cases, defending human trafficking victims, and teaching and writing about human trafficking at law schools, governments, NGOs and businesses around the world, this book provides both substantive and practical insight into the role of the human trafficking lawyer as counselor, litigator, and policy maker.
