Triangulated Nexus of Anti-trafficking Enforcement

  • Maria Ravlik


Part I of the book discusses how certain global factors contribute to the development of main global hindrances to enforcement, which together form triangulated nexus of anti-trafficking enforcement. This chapter presents a closer examination of this nexus, in particular, the relationship between concepts of the nexus and empirical data such as indices of anti-trafficking enforcement.
