Migrants of all kinds often find themselves at the sharp edge of such experiences. This edited collection explores the lives of the rapidly growing numbers of migrants, examining issues of vulnerability and exploitation in the labour market, and drawing on material from across the world. It does this through a far-reaching analysis of lived experiences of exploitation in different geographical contexts. In cataloguing these experiences, the book investigates global neoliberalized economies and emergent labour and product supply chains- states management of migrants mobility and the structural production of immigration statuses- characteristics of enclave economies for migrants and their co-ethnic/co-language networks- and national/international responses and interventions designed to tackle migrant exploitation. Global exploitation processes, the book argues, require global responses.
