Arthur Brown, assistant director of the Institute of Middle East Studies, based in Mansourieh, Lebanon, reflects in a blog post on the recent high profile case of alleged trafficking involving a Saudi princess who was was arrested for human trafficking in Irvine, California, USA.
"Whilst this has become a high profile case, and is no doubt shocking to many of our readers, the reality is that there will be many in our part of the world who will be scratching their heads and wondering what the big deal is. The truth is that this is an everyday reality of hundreds of thousands of women across the MENA region. The experience of the Kenyan woman is typical for far too many."Full post titled "Trafficking of Migrant Domestic Workers: A Tale of Two Cities" on the blog of the Institute of Middle East Studies: http://imeslebanon.wordpress.com/2013/07/18/trafficking-of-migrant-domestic-workers-a-tale-of-two-cities/
