About Caribbean Anti-Trafficking Law and Practice

This monograph investigates the International, European and Commonwealth Caribbean approaches to human trafficking from an Analytical Eclectic perspective. It presents a compelling, empirically based argument that although there is currently a panoply of measures aimed at preventing human trafficking, prosecuting offenders and protecting trafficked victims in both Europe and the Commonwealth Caribbean, these measures have in practice been fraught with a number of challenges, whether of a normative, institutional or individual nature. The continued existence of these challenges strongly suggests that there exists a 'disconnect' between anti-trafficking law and practice which is not peculiar to small-island developing States since they also extend to developed States, including the United Kingdom. Although these challenges are not insurmountable, this monograph advances the argument that sustained social, economic, political and legal commitments are both necessary and desirable, and that without such commitments, only pyrrhic victories would be won in the fight to eradicate the scourge of the twenty-first century.

Given the importance of the issue of human trafficking and its inescapable impact on victims, families, communities, nations, regions and the international community as a whole, this monograph will serve as an important resource for policy makers, scholars, students and practitioners actively working in this increasingly dynamic area of law.

From the Foreword:
Jason Haynes has approached this difficult topic with a balance of academic rigour and humanity. In addition to providing an invaluable source of information and data, he presents challenging arguments compelling everyone, especially politicians, lawyers, judges and academics to look again at the way in which we tackle these complex problems.
” –  Hon Mrs Justice Maura McGowan QC, DBE, High Court Judge, London,

From the Foreword:
This book is an essential and fundamental guide to any person or organisation that is interested or concerned about human trafficking... This book is stimulating and thought-provoking and empowers those who read it to revisit the laws, practices and protocols within their countries, and to employ their best efforts to ensure that firstly human trafficking is eradicated; secondly, that victims of human trafficking, in particular, children are protected; thirdly, that adequate safeguards are put in place; and, just as importantly, there is continued informative discussion and debate about the issue.
” –  Hon Mr Justice Shiraz Aziz, Supreme Court Judge, Turks and Caicos Islands,
