Summary of Gridlock: Labor, Migration, and Human Trafficking in Dubai – 1st Edition
From publisher Stanford University Press:
The images of human trafficking are all too often reduced to media tales of helpless young women taken by heavily accented, dark-skinned captors but the reality is a far cry from this stereotype. In the Middle East, Dubai has been accused of being a hotbed of trafficking. Pardis Mahdavi, however, draws a more complicated and more personal picture of this city filled with migrants. Not all migrant workers are trapped, tricked, and abused. Like anyone else, they make choices to better their lives, though the risk of ending up in bad situations is high. Legislators hoping to combat human trafficking focus heavily on women and sex work, but there is real potential for abuse of both male and female migrants in a variety of areas of employment whether on the street, in a field, at a restaurant, or at someone’s house. Gridlock explores how migrants’ actual experiences in Dubai contrast with the typical discussions and global moral panic about human trafficking. Mahdavi powerfully contrasts migrants’ own stories with interviews with U.S. policy makers, revealing the gaping disconnect between policies on human trafficking and the realities of forced labor and migration in the Persian Gulf. To work toward solving this global problem, we need to be honest about what trafficking is and is not and to finally get past the stereotypes about trafficked persons so we can really understand the challenges migrant workers are living through every day.
