Abstract

This research review addresses the similarities and differences between domestic violence and sex
trafficking victimization. While there is evidence that domestic violence and sex trafficking often cooccur,
there is a large disparity in the understanding and interventions utilized by law enforcement
as well as the services available for victims of each crime despite the considerable overlap of
victimization. This article explores current research regarding domestic violence and sex trafficking
with a focus towards identifying areas of overlap and areas distinct to sex trafficking.
