Public Awareness of Human Trafficking in Europe: How Concerned Are European Citizens?

Rebecca A. Bishop, Charlie V. Morgan & Lance Erickson (2013):  Public Awareness of Human Trafficking in Europe: How Concerned Are European Citizens?, in: Journal of Immigrant & Refugee Studies, Volume 11, Issue 2, pp. 113-135. 

This study examined the relationship between a European Union (EU) citizens’ degrees of concern toward human trafficking and demographic characteristics, attitudes toward immigrants, and proximity variables (such as geographic region, the number of immigrants, and the percentage of immigrants within their country) using the Eurobarometer 2003 (N = 15,650), which surveyed participants in 15 EU countries. A regression analysis found that older citizens, female citizens, citizens with strong attitudes toward immigrants, citizens who lived in countries that were main routes of illegal immigration, and citizens who lived in regions with more immigrants show more concern about trafficking.
