This book examines the role of globalization and local factors in the increase of contemporary slavery and possible ways forward in legislation, policy-making, NGO campaigns and research. Specific proposals for improvement of international and national law as well as victim support measures are discussed and perspectives on economic development and social change are evaluated for their use in combating slavery. Reparations for slavery in the past are analyzed as a possible aid in raising awareness and increased pressure on government to take full responsibility for ending slavery.
