Description - The Political Economy of New Slavery by Christien van den Anker
This volume combines chapters containing a multidisciplinary academic analysis of the causes of the continued existence of contemporary forms of slavery, such as globalization, poverty and migration with empirical chapters on trafficking, domestic migrant workers, bonded labour and child labour in Asia, Latin America and Africa.
