Abstract:This book explores variants of human sex trafficking for Commercial Sexual Exploitation (CSE) from a global perspective in terms of its multiple purposes and victims. It provides a comprehensive examination and coverage of human sex trafficking, including its prevalence and possibility, as well as the legal and legislative responses to human trafficking by countries across various geographic regions of the world. The introduction gives an overview of the scope of sex trafficking of women and children for CSE, including the background to the concentrated effort in the US which has led to 'tier ranking' of countries based on their efforts in preventing human sex trafficking. The subsequent chapters provide an assessment of human sex trafficking in geographical regions as categorized by the US State Department's Annual Report of Trafficking in Persons 2008: Africa; East Asia and Pacific; Europe; Near East; South Asia; Western Hemisphere; and North America. Part 1 on Africa has two contributions, one on the Horn of Africa by Sabita Manian, the other on South Africa, Mozambique and Zimbabwe, by William J. Mathias and Kimberly A. McCabe. Part 4 on the Near East has a contribution on the Maghreb, by Sunita Manian. [ASC Leiden abstract]
