Greece has been both a destination and a transit country for human trafficking since the 1990s. Public perceptions, the understanding, and policy responses towards trafficking have been shaped by its connection with migration and the conditions of migrant exploitation in various sectors of the Greek economy. Using the rubric of criminogenic asymmetries to bring the above dimensions fully into the analysis, this chapter builds on extant research and other open sources to offer an overview of the issue of trafficking and the development of policy responses in Greece.
