Trafficking in Women, Forced Labour and Slavery-like Practices

A report presenting the results of an international investigation on trafficking in women, forced labour & slavery-like practices in the contexts of marriage, domestic labour and prostitution, this document marks a major turning point in thinking and activism around trafficking. Initiated in 1995 in response to the invitation of the then UN Special Rapporteur on Violence Against Women, (SRVAW) the investigation was carried out by the Dutch Foundation Against Trafficking in Women (STV) and GAATW. A condensed version of the report was submitted to the SRVAW and the complete report was published in 1997.

A reprint with some revision, mainly in the layout and chapter division has been brought out in 1999.
