Using an interdisciplinary approach, this subject explores the concept of human exploitation in contemporary criminal justice and criminology. It conceptualises different forms of human exploitation, such as modern-day slavery, human trafficking, forced labour, debt bondage, child exploitation, organ harvesting and other practices similar to slavery (servitude, serfdom and servile marriage), and explores the criminalisation of human exploitation and effective ways of combating those practices. The (global) extent of the problem and the major pull and push factors that render people vulnerable to human exploitation are critically examined, as is the place of victims as bearers of rights with their own agency.
