From the Foreword: Jason Haynes has approached this difficult topic
with a balance of academic rigour and humanity. In addition to
providing an invaluable source of information and data, he presents
challenging arguments compelling everyone, especially politicians,
lawyers, judges and academics to look again at the way in which we
tackle these complex problems. -- Hon Mrs Justice Maura McGowan QC,
DBE, High Court Judge, London
From the Foreword: This book is an essential and fundamental guide to any person or organisation that is interested or concerned about human trafficking... This book is stimulating and thought-provoking and empowers those who read it to revisit the laws, practices and protocols within their countries, and to employ their best efforts to ensure that firstly human trafficking is eradicated; secondly, that victims of human trafficking, in particular, children are protected; thirdly, that adequate safeguards are put in place; and, just as importantly, there is continued informative discussion and debate about the issue. -- Hon Mr Justice Shiraz Aziz, Supreme Court Judge, Turks and Caicos Islands
