Trading life: Organ trafficking, illicit networks, and exploitation

A Talk by Associate Professor, Dr Mary Young , Dr Seán Columb and Guadalupe Correa Cabrera

About this Talk

"Trading Life" brings together over six years of fieldwork in Egypt (2014-2020) charting the development of the organ trade from an informal economic activity into a structured criminal network. Informed by ethnographic research and interviews with people involved in various aspects of organ trading (i.e., sellers, buyers, brokers, medical staff) it is the first empirical and socio-legal study of organ markets and the networks that supply them.
