Global Human Smuggling : Comparative Perspectives Paperback / softback

Edited by David Kyle, Rey Koslowski


Ten years ago the topic of human smuggling and trafficking was relatively new for academic researchers, though the practice itself is very old.

Since the first edition of this volume was published, much has changed globally, directly impacting the phenomenon of human smuggling.

Migrant smuggling and human trafficking are now more entrenched than ever in many regions, with efforts to combat them both largely unsuccessful and often counterproductive.

This book explores human smuggling in several forms and regions, globally examining its deep historic, social, economic, and cultural roots and its broad political consequences. Contributors to the updated and expanded edition consider the trends and events of the past several years, especially in light of developments after 9/11 and the creation of the U.S.

Department of Homeland Security. They also reflect on the moral economy of human smuggling and trafficking, the increasing percentage of the world's asylum seekers who escape political violence only by being smuggled, and the implications of human smuggling in a warming world.
