(p.159) 10 Policing Forced Marriages Among Pakistanis in the United Kingdom
Human Trafficking

Stefano Bonino

Edinburgh University Press

Chapter 10 addresses the emotive subject of forced marriages in one ethnic community in the UK in the context of human trafficking. It highlights that forced marriage entails the abuse and exploitation of boys and (more often) girls and that efforts to address the issue is fraught with difficulties, not least the often tense relationships between police and minority ethnic communities. The chapter explores how the often transnational nature of this form of human trafficking creates additional problems for policing and that without the involvement of grassroots, community based organisations addressing the issue will remain difficult.
