Global  efforts to combat human trafficking are ubiquitous and reference  particular ideas about unfreedoms, suffering, and rescue. The discourse  has, however, a distinct racialized legacy that is lodged specifically  in fears about "white slavery," women in prostitution and migration, and  the defilement of white womanhood by the criminal and racialized Other.  White Supremacy, Racism and the Coloniality of Anti-Trafficking centers the legacies of race and racism in contemporary anti-trafficking work and examines them in greater detail.

A  number of recent arguments have suggested that race and racism are not  only visible, but vital, to the success of contemporary anti-  trafficking discourses and movements. The contributors offer recent  scholarship grounded in critical anti- racist perspectives that reveal  the historical and contemporary racial working of anti- trafficking  discourses and practices globally―and how these intersect with gender,  citizenship, sexuality, caste and class formations, and the global  political economy.
