Has slavery truly been abolished in modern society? Unfortunately not. Siddharth Kara is the first Fellow on Human Trafficking with the Kennedy School of Government at Harvard University, and a founding member of Harvard’s Advisory Collective on Human Rights. He is also the author of Sex Trafficking: Inside the Business of Modern Slavery. Kara first encountered the horrors of slavery in a Bosnian refugee camp in 1995. Subsequently, he traveled to sixteen countries on five continents to further research these crimes. Kara tracked down sex slaves in brothels, clubs, massage parlors, apartments, and street corners, and other types of slaves in factories, brick kilns, carpet looms, agriculture fields, mines, quarries, and victim shelters. Across five continents, he witnessed firsthand the sale of human beings into slavery, interviewed over five hundred slaves, and confronted some of those who trafficked and exploited them.
