truongA new ISS Working Paper has been published by Dr. Thanh Dam Truong, senior researcher with the GGSJ research programme and Associate Professor of Women, Gender and Development Studies.

Entitled Human trafficking, globalisation and transnational feminist responses, this ISS working paper (no. 579) presents a historical overview of feminist frameworks for analysis and advocacy on human trafficking. By tracing the epistemological and ethical tensions in the body of knowledge about human trafficking and the power relations involved in interpreting the question of human dignity and agency, the paper hopes to open new lines for debate and cooperation to address the varying interpretations of the use of force as well as the nature of human agency, decision-making and choice in the business of human trafficking.
