About Us

Welcome to the Interdisciplinary Project on Human Trafficking website.

We are a group of scholars, activists and practitioners from a range of professional backgrounds including law, anthropology and sociology. Though with different political views, we share a commitment to social justice involving labor, migration and human trafficking. We also share a concern that public debate, particularly on trafficking, is too often simplistic,  failing to take account of human aspirations, agency and experiences. With this website we seek to provide access to the best scholarship, activism and reform efforts involving these urgent issues. We believe that evidence-based research and policy are both possible and essential. By making them more available, we seek to contribute to a future in which progress towards ending human exploitation is measured in terms of human dignity, equality, justice and empowerment.
