This article looks at critical concepts found in the new South African counter-trafficking legislation. First it will examine the issue of consent, and its pivotal role in defining both adult and child trafficking. Next, the concept of coercion will be addressed, and whether such a term should be interpreted broadly to include psychological coercion. Finally, the potential consequences trafficking has for the victim and the role that such longitudinal damage should play in determining a just and informed sentence will be examined.
