Senior lecturer Dr Erin O’Brien from QUT’s School of Justice has recently published an article which examines the depiction of human trafficking ‘heroes’ and ‘villains’ in anti-trafficking campaigns.The article explores the construction of the ‘problem’ of trafficking using materials from 18 anti-trafficking awareness campaigns to identify assumptions about the causes of trafficking and more specifically, the  trafficking offender. 

Dr O’Brien argues that these campaigns offer narrow understandings of the problem of trafficking, particularly through depictions of ‘ideal offenders’.
