The swell of attention surrounding human trafficking over the past two decades has driven policies and laws to combat this global issue. However, these efforts are based on assertions about human trafficking—it is huge in magnitude; it is a growing problem; and it ranks among criminal enterprises—that have no empirical evidence. Without such evidence, we lack a true understanding of the reach of human trafficking. Instead, we are left to believe sensationalized media stories, celebrity activists, and political discourse. This groundbreaking volume of The ANNALS offers empirical studies that explore the complexity, scope, and particular locales of human trafficking. The articles look beyond the misconceived portrayals of human trafficking, delving into often overseen dimensions of it, such as labor trafficking and migration, and provide breakthrough findings on victims, facilitators, and offenders. Further high-quality empirical analysis will bring about a better understanding of the nuances of human trafficking and can be used to inform future policies.

Third Party Sex Work and Pimps in the Age of Anti-trafficking

Author: Amber Horning,Anthony Marcus

Publisher: Springer

ISBN: 3319503057

Category: Social Science

This volume is a compilation of new original qualitative and ethnographic research on pimps and other third party facilitators of commercial sex from the developed and developing world. From African-American pimps in the United States and Eastern European migrants in Germany to Brazilian cafetãos and cafetinas this volume features the lives and voices of the men and women who enable diverse and culturally distinct sex markets around the world. In scholarly, popular, and policy-making discourses, such individuals are typically viewed as larger-than-life hustlers, violent predators, and brutal exploiters. However, there is actually very little empirical research-based knowledge about how pimps and third party facilitators actually live, labor, and make meaning in their everyday lives. Nearly all previous knowledge derives from hearsay and post-hoc reporting from ex-sex-workers, customers, police and government agents, neighbors, and self-aggrandizing fictionalized memoirs. This volume is the first published compilation of empirically researched data and analysis about pimps and third parties working in the sex trade across the globe. Situated in an age of highly punitive and ubiquitous global anti-trafficking law, it challenges highly charged public policy stereotypes that conflate pimping and sex trafficking, in order to understand the lived experience of pimps and the men and women whose work they facilitate.

Crime in the United States has fluctuated considerably over the past thirty years, as have the policy approaches to deal with it. During this time criminologists and other scholars have helped to shed light on the role of incarceration, prevention, drugs, guns, policing, and numerous other aspects to crime control. Yet the latest research is rarely heard in public discussions and is often missing from the desks of policymakers. This book accessibly summarizes the latest scientific information on the causes of crime and evidence about what does and does not work to control it. Thoroughly revised and updated, this new version of Crime and Public Policy will include twenty chapters and five new substantial entries. As with previous editions, each essay reviews the existing literature, discusses the methodological rigor of the studies, identifies what policies and programs the studies suggest, and then points to policies now implemented that fail to reflect the evidence. The chapters cover the principle institutions of the criminal justice system (juvenile justice, police, prisons, probation and parole, sentencing), how broader aspects of social life inhibit or encourage crime (biology, schools, families, communities), and topics currently generating a great deal of attention (criminal activities of gangs, sex offenders, prisoner reentry, changing crime rates). With contributions from trusted, leading scholars, Crime and Public Policy offers the most comprehensive and balanced guide to how the latest and best social science research informs the understanding of crime and its control for policymakers, community leaders, and students of crime and criminal justice.

Crime and Economics

Crime and Economics provides the first comprehensive and accessible text to address the economics of crime within the study of crime and criminology. The economics of crime is an area of growing activity and concern, increasingly influential both to the study of crime and criminal justice and to the formulation of crime reduction and criminal justice policy. As well as providing an overview of the relationship between economics and crime, this book poses key questions such as: What is the impact of the labour market and poverty on crime? Can society decrease criminal activity from a basis of economic disincentives? What forms of crime reduction and methods of reducing re-offending are most cost beneficial? Can illicit organised crime and illicit drug markets be understood better through the application of economic analysis? For those interested in economic methods, but without previous economic training, this book also provides an accessible overview of key areas such as cost-benefit analysis, econometrics and the debate around how to estimate the costs of crime. This book will be key reading for undergraduate and postgraduate students of criminology and economics and those working in the criminal justice system including practitioners, managers and policy makers.

Gender, shocks, and resilience

This brief attempts to unpack the relationship between gender and resilience by reviewing the evidence on men’s and women’s differential exposure to risk and the differential impact of shocks on men and women, and by examining the different types of mechanisms that men and women use to cope with and insure against risk. In reviewing these mechanisms, we assess whether they contribute to building resilience and we suggest gender-sensitive insurance mechanisms that will allow men and women alike to manage and cope with risk and vulnerability.

Keine Zeit

Diese Studie aus den USA untersucht die Situation berufstätiger Eltern zwischen den Anforderungen einer globalisierten Arbeitswelt und denen des Familienlebens. Es bleibt buchstäblich ,Keine Zeit'. Warum das so ist, zeigt dieses Publikation über die Praxis eines Unternehmens im Mittleren Westen der USA. In Interviews mit den Beschäftigten eines großen amerikanischen Konzerns geht die Autorin der Frage nach, warum so viele Eltern über Zeitnot klagen und trotzdem nur wenige die familienfreundlichen Arbeitszeitregelungen des Unternehmens nutzen. Noch vor dem ersten Interview ermittelte Hochschild, dass nur 3 % aller Beschäftigten mit Kindern von 13 Jahren und jünger Teilzeit arbeiteten; nur ein Prozent machte Job Sharing; gerade ein Drittel der Eltern hatten flexible Arbeitszeiten - die übrigen arbeiteten neun oder zehn Stunden am Tag mit festen Zeiten. Alle kannten das vielfältige Angebot der fortschrittlichen Unternehmung, welche zum Ziel hat, die Karriere und Familie problemlos miteinander zu verbinden. Weshalb nutzten so viele Eltern nicht die großzügigen Angebote von Amerco? In den 130 Interviews kristallisierte sich heraus, dass sie weitgehend dem Bild vom "idealen" Angestellten entsprechen wollten - ein in den USA weit verbreitetes Leitbild, in dessen Zentrum Flexibilität steht: die Bereitschaft, ohne Widerspruch andere Aufgaben in der Firma zu übernehmen, Überstunden zu machen, in Notfällen die Arbeit anderer mit zu erledigen oder jederzeit umzuziehen.

Die industrialisierte Vagina

Die Industrialisierung der Prostitution und des Sexhandels hat einen viele Milliarden Dollar schweren globalen Markt geschaffen, der Millionen von Frauen betrifft und wesentlich zur Wirtschaft einzelner Länder als auch zur Weltwirtschaft beiträgt. „Die industrialisierte Vagina“ untersucht, wie sich Prostitution und andere Bereiche der Sexindustrie – einst sich im Verborgenen abspielende und gesellschaftlich verachtete Praktiken in kleinem Maßstab – zu sehr profitablen, seriösen Marktsektoren entwickelt haben, die von Regierungen legalisiert und entkriminalisiert wurden. Sheila Jeffreys demonstriert die Globalisierung der Prostitution, in dem sie nicht nur auf das Wachstum und die globale Ausbreitung der Pornografie und den Boom von Sexshops, Stripclubs und Begleitagenturen hinweist. Sie bezieht auch die Katalogbrautindustrie und die Zunahme von Sextourismus und Frauenhandel sowie Militärprostitution und sexuelle Gewalt im Krieg mit ein.
