New Issue Anti-Trafficking Review 'Human Rights at the Border'

Anti-Trafficking Review issue 2, on 'Human Rights at the Border', is now available free online at:
What should be the role for border controls in anti-trafficking responses, if there should be one at all? Heightened border security is increasing risks in the migration process. Many people decide that despite barriers and risks they must cross a border for survival, either in terms of economics or safety. In many cases, at border crossings, it is not possible for practitioners to tell if people are being strictly trafficked or whether they fall in another migration category, yet the risks created by border systems and the violations experienced by individuals at borders are not to be left out of conversations on trafficking and of migrants' rights more broadly.
The latest issue of the Anti-Trafficking Review ( includes eight peer-reviewed articles on how anti-trafficking measures play out in border zones.
