An interview with Siddharth Kara, fellow at the Carr Center for Human Rights Policy at Harvard Kennedy School and one of the world’s foremost experts on human trafficking and modern day slavery, covers the evolution of Kara’s anti-trafficking efforts, and the current landscape of these issues, challenges and opportunities to making progress.
Kara is the author of the award-winning book, “Sex Trafficking: Inside the Business of Modern Slavery,” the first of three books he is writing on the subjects of human trafficking and contemporary slavery. “Sex Trafficking” was named co-winner of the prestigious 2010 Frederick Douglass Award at Yale University for the best non-fiction book on slavery. Kara also currently advises the United Nations, the U.S. Government, and several other governments on antislavery research, policy and law.
