Unprincipled Misery

How does migration become human trafficking?

> download Unprincipled Misery (PDF, 1.38MB)


Trafficking in persons prospers within an environment of invisibility and entrenched marginalisation and discrimination. Such environments create the perfect conditions for unprincipled misery. Many of us are privileged to live in an ever accessible world; we are free to travel and free to purchase our goods from an international market at bargain prices.

Furthermore, many of us from industrialised countries have migrated to different lands, availing for ourselves and our families new lives with enhanced opportunities. Yet, for the majority of the world’s inhabitants, this is not the case. A person desiring to migrate from a developing country often faces significant barriers.
