Abstract

Southeast Asia is one of these regions where human migration has reached an unprecedented level for these last three decades, thanks to the opening of borders, the economic reforms and the impulse that uneven development between rural and urban, or central and peripheral areas has generated among yearning individuals. Therefore, the issue of human trafficking has also attracted attention since various observers usually understand it as a disease that comes along with such upheavals. Literature on human trafficking has flourished in similar haste due to the expansion of the field projects and legal tools designed to cope with the newly articulated phenomenon. However, critical contributions on the way this concept was understood and applied to the field have also soon followed. A comprehensive volume on the situation in Southeast Asia was missing and this one, by specifically focusing on the link between human trafficking and labour migration, provides such growing scholarship with an insightful analysis on this region’s experience. Based on extensive ethnographic data and analysis of official documents, the authors of this edited volume engage with the ongoing discussions on the human trafficking paradigm by focusing on three significant aspects: the link between the control of labour
