VAWnet Summary:

Human Trafficking by the National Resource Center on Domestic Violence in consultation with the National Sexual Violence Resource Center (Updated September 2014)

This “Human Trafficking Special Collection” aims to illuminate different forms of, and perspectives on, human trafficking and to provide relevant resources to help guide more informed and critical advocacy, research, and thought. At the outset, we must acknowledge that language and terminology is not always consistent, agreed on or inclusive and recognize that myths, misinformation, and stereotypes surround some of the issues and individuals touched by human trafficking.

Although the included resources highlight a broad array of perspectives on human trafficking, more resources have been devoted to sex trafficking in order to show how this particularly intersects with women’s lives, the feminist movement, women’s human rights, violence against women, and the domestic violence community as we address these issues more specifically in our work. This is not intended to diminish other forms of human trafficking or overlook or reduce the intersections and overlap an individual can experience in their victimization(s) as a trafficked person.
