Focusing on three national case studies this chapter explores the comparative empirical data on public knowledge and understanding of human trafficking, examining the link between public knowledge and public policies. It highlights how public understanding of the issues are shaped by pervading state neoliberal governmentalities, focusing largely on vulnerable victims and perpetrators, but rarely located in personal lives as ‘consumer-citizens’.
