Ethical Implications of the Logic of Economic Gain Devoid of Respect for Human Dignity

Publication Date May 20, 2022

Abstract

Global discourse and action on human trafficking clearly depict it as being incompatible with the dignity and worth of the human person. This is premised on the fact that conditions that permit human trafficking also condone labour and sexual exploitation, tolerate unregulated and unscrupulous business practices, and maintain status inequalities and marginalization against persons being trafficked. Human trafficking is today characterized by the exploitation of vulnerable people and is a violation of their basic human right to autonomy and freedom. This lends credence to why human trafficking has been referred to as “modern slavery.” The existence of human trafficking in contemporary societies underscores society's ongoing struggle to secure equality and human rights for all its members. Drawing upon an extensive seminal and contemporary research as well as existing literature on human trafficking, this chapter examines the phenomenon vis-a-vis the logic of economic gain devoid of respect for human dignity using Biderman's theory of coercion.
