The London School of Economic's weekly newspaper, The Beaver, has published two articles on behalf of the OSCE Special Representative and Co-ordinator for Combating Trafficking in Human Beings. "The dark side of globalisation" by Sini Ramo covers the phenomenon of human trafficking in a globalised world. While trafficking for sexual exploitation is the most well-known form of trafficking, trafficking for the purposes of domestic servitude is increasing and extending its reach globally. Trafficking in domestic workers seems to constitute a hidden form of exploitation that stands outside of public scrutiny due to its containment within the private realm of the household.
