ROBINSON, Jill. Public perceptions of human trafficking in Moldova. Psychosocial Intervention [online]. 2011, vol.20, n.3, pp.269-279. ISSN 2173-4712.  http://dx.doi.org/10.5093/in2011v20n3a4.

Human trafficking is a widely studied phenomenon. Comparing public perceptions of trafficking to institutional (i.e. the academy, governmental and non-governmental organizations) perceptions gives a richer understanding of the problem. The data for this study were collected in and around Chisinau, Moldova in the summer of 2004. Public discourse provides a more intimate "portraiture" of the issue, but the public also demonstrated a complex level of understanding of this social problem in this study. Its view is juxtaposed against an institutional view of human trafficking as explored through a literature review. Combining institutional and public perceptions and knowledge of a social problem is helpful in not only establishing a more thorough understanding of the social problem and guiding policy decisions, but in exploring the experiences victims may face at the community level.

Palavras-chave : human trafficking; institutional perceptions; public perceptions; victims and community.
