Scholarship on contemporary slavery has advanced an increasingly nuanced understanding of the problem. This essay suggests that an additional intervention is necessary in two areas. While early efforts to "do anything" to "rescue" victims of trafficking and slavery are laudable, it is now time to better contextualize strategies of intervention and emancipation by constructing a typology of the trajectories of emancipation. In addition, the literature on contemporary slavery sketches perpetrators in crude terms, often attempting to understand their motivations and efforts exclusively through the lens of criminal justice. More sensitive instruments are needed if we want to understand the other half of this exploitative relationship.

Keywords: Contemporary slavery, emancipation, victims of slavery, intervention strategies, slavers
