Human Trafficking in Thailand

Recently published at Washington University Press :

SORHUMSIROK SORAJJAKOOL, Human Trafficking in Thailand. Current Issues, Trends, and the Role of the Thai Government.

“Few subjects elicit greater moral outrage than human trafficking. Media reports of dehumanizing practices such as slavery, abduction, child prostitution, and torture, along with shocking statistics, form the basis of public knowledge.

With sensitivity and candor, this book addresses the reality of human trafficking in Thailand, dissecting studies, presenting facts, and dismissing stereotypes. It focuses on the areas of fishing, agriculture, domestic work, sex work, and the trafficking of children, weaving individual narratives and official studies into the wider history of Thailand’s changing economy and labor situation.

Siroj Sorajjakool is professor of religion, psychology, and counseling at Loma Linda University, California.”
