Human Rights Studies
Abstract
The purpose of this study is to analyse the common representation of the trafficker, namely the offender of human trafficking, by examining newspaper articles, novels and film. The crystallised image is compared to recent statistics and in relation to this an explanation of the image of the trafficker inspired by discursive perspectives will be offered. The study concludes that the prevalent image of the trafficker is a result of a Western patriarchal view on ethnicity and gender.
