Date: 15 January 2019

We invite you to submit a chapter proposal for an edited book that is planned by Project Solebay. Project Solebay stems out of the realisation that not enough is being done by state and coalition forces to consider human trafficking in conflicts and peacebuilding missions.

Whilst the output of Project Solebay is to develop and test a risk assessment and risk identification methodology, inclusive of options for mitigation measures around human trafficking, the purpose of the book is to shine light on the various issues around human trafficking, military and conflict nexus. Please note we are still working on the title, which will be inspired by the various chapters included within the book.

We are currently in the process of submitting a book proposal and are looking for contributions!
