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.
