A study of human trafficking in Southeast Asia, the economic causes and how trafficking has become the underbelly of global capitalism. After outlining its characteristics, and more broadly its official UN definition this paper examines the mission undertaken by networks of Catholics and Pentecostals. They aim to uphold human dignity by protecting the persons, prevent further trafficking by reaching to the heart, prosecute the perpetrators by naming the sin, and all this through widespread partnering and so spreading Gospel community.
