Broadening the Scope of Human Trafficking Research is an edited reader that not only discusses the myriad of types of human trafficking (e.g. sex trafficking, labor trafficking, adoption, child soldiers, organ trafficking, servile marriage...) but also the diversity of victims identities and the relationship to heightened trafficking risk (e.g. race, ethnicity, socioeconomic status, age, sex, sexual orientation, gender identity...).

The book emphasizes the multiple types of human trafficking and exploitation evident worldwide, with a particular emphasis on identity-based vulnerabilities and those otherwise marginalized in the research literature. The public discourse associated with human trafficking has led the general public to believe that human trafficking is synonymous with sex trafficking. Although this is the most identified form of human trafficking, it is not the only practice of traffickers. It has been revealed that children are illegally sold through false adoption agencies; women are bought for marriage and then forced into various forms of labor; children become involved in paramilitary organizations and are coerced into fighting as soldiers. All of these activities fall under the umbrella term of human trafficking, but are not often socially nor legally represented as such. Similarly, the role of identity based oppression is marginalized in the research literature as well.

This edited reader reveals the complexity of human trafficking, and lays the groundwork for a shift in the global understanding and policies associated with human trafficking. This edited volume brings together experts from multi-disciplinary perspectives and backgrounds to discuss the various types of human trafficking as well as the myriad of victim identities and related vulnerabilities.
