This chapter will draw on recent research in Victoria, Australia, to examine the limits of legal responses to both human trafficking and family violence. It will map some of the critical issues that arise when exploitation, including debt bondage, forced labor, sexual violence, and interpersonal abuse, occur within the context of a relationship between an Australian citizen or permanent resident (most often a man) and a noncitizen who has a temporary visa (most often a woman). The aim of the chapter is to highlight the limits of both trafficking legislation and family violence legislation to adequately capture and effectively respond to violence and exploitation in this setting. Drawing on case studies, the chapter will map key concerns that are challenging how we think about the utility of the current counter trafficking regime.
