Overview

Trafficking of persons (mostly women and children) for commercial sexual activities and forced labor is one of the fastest growing areas of international crime. The United Nations estimates that four million men, women, and children become victims of international trafficking each year. Trafficking and the Global Sex Industry focuses on the international trafficking of women and children for forced labor and prostitution. This compelling anthology takes a broad geographical and economical perspective while also dealing with the specificities of the sociopolitical background, poverty, opportunity structure, legal conditions, the role of the state, gender structure, and the organization of the trafficking business. The essays create a link from country to country, demonstrating the worldwide nature of the problem. Expertly written and well researched, this collection gives the reader a clearer understanding of the problem and the actions being taken to combat it.
