Forced Labor : Coercion and Exploitation in the Private Economy Paperback / softback
Edited by Beate Andrees, Patrick Belser
Two centuries after the abolition of the transatlantic slave trade, at least 12.3 million people are subjected to modern forms of forced labor - in rich countries, as well as poor ones.
The authors of ""Forced Labor"" present state-of-the art research on the manifestations of these slavery-like practices, why they continue to survive, and how they can be eliminated.
Their conceptually rich analysis, combined with insightful case studies from Asia, Europe, and Latin America, is a major contribution on an issue of pressing global concern.
The book explores the contemporary manifestations of slavery-like labor practices, why they continue to survive, and how they can be eliminated.
