Media Sources on Human Trafficking

From my vast sea of book marks, I’ve selected and organized a list of the better pieces of journalism relating to human trafficking and sexual slavery.

The best investigative journalism on the subject of sex trafficking are The New Yorker article, by William Finnegan; the articles about Cambodia, by Nicholas Kristof of The New York Times; and the recent article in Marie Clair, by Abigail Pesta.

The online New York Times has a section called Times Topics, where they group past articles together by subject. They have a category called Human Trafficking. The site has several articles that explain human trafficking.
