Terms and Conditions of Labor
This chapter examines the trade in persons, also known as human trafficking, and the way that trade rules have promoted it as a modern form of slavery. It first considers trafficking within the human rights and international trade frameworks and goes on to discuss how globalization has contributed to the increase in trafficking. It then describes the reality of trafficking worldwide and cites debt bondage as a common contemporary example of involuntary servitude. It also explores the trafficking of children, women, and girls as well as trafficking in countries of the Free Trade Area of the Americas. The realities and ubiquities of trafficking in Guatemala, Mexico, and the United States are analyzed.
