Product Description

The Trade in Human Beings for Sex in Southeast Asia brings together 28 senior scholars and experts hailing from all over the world in various disciplines: Ethnology and Social Anthropology, Sociology, Geography, Political Science, Psychology, Psycho-Criminology, Medicine, Law, Economics, History, as well as Humanitarian assistance to give a general statement on slavery, prostitution and trafficking in persons in this region. In recent years, prostitution and trafficking in women and children for the purpose of sexual exploitation has been steadily increasing at an alarming rate. Underlying reasons are not only the ongoing process of globalization and the lagging behind of the concerned emerging countries, but also a number of cultural factors specific to this region. The problem background is given in Part 1: A look at the past, Part 2 provides the data from field studies in human trafficking and prostitution, Part 3 deals with additional related problems and suggests possible responses. This indispensable work covers all aspects of a complex social problem and offers some suggestions on how to deal with this it. This work was published in cooperation with Research Institute on Contemporary Studies(IRASEC)
