Abstract

This essay argues that the dualistic conception of work in Catholic social teaching – most notably in John Paul II’s Laborem Excerens – may provide a bridge between otherwise deeply divided views regarding how to conceptualize and define sex trafficking.

Keywords: Sex trafficking, Catholic social teaching
