Volume 5, Issue 1 (2008) Anti-Trafficking, Human Rights, and Social JusticeThis special issue is edited by Tiantian Zheng, associate professor of Anthropology at SUNY Cortland. Through the life experiences, agency, and human rights of women who are involved in a variety of activities that are characterized as “trafficked” terrains in a de-territorialized and re-territorialized world, this issue sheds light on the complicated processes in which anti-trafficking, human rights, and social justice are intersected. This special issue theorizes and conceptualizes the intertwined discourses on anti-trafficking, human rights, and social justice from the perspectives of the transnational migrant populations. Specifically, this issue includes articles that rearticulate the trafficking discourses away from the state control of immigration and the global policing of borders, and reassert social justice and the needs, agency, and human rights of migrant and working communities.
