Thailand, Prostitution, and Economics
This 6 page report discusses the economic aspects of prostitution in Thailand and examines the significant impact it has had on the national economy. Internationally, Thailand has been commonly described as a nation in which commercial sex has been raised to the level of a national industry. As an important spur to its rapid economic growth in the 1980s, Thailand as a tourist destination was, in part, marketed to the foreign market via the explicit and implied suggestion of readily available cheap sex. The Thai government and media are attempting to refute that image but the fact remains that prostitution, in Thailand, is a significant economic unit of production. Bibliography lists 9 sources.

Sexual Exploitation and the Trafficking of Women
A 48 page paper presenting a comprehensive overview of human trafficking, particularly of women for the purpose of sexual exploitation. The introduction provides a general overview and insight into the extent of this crime. Human trafficking is reported to be the third most profitable illegal business in the world. The second section of the paper offers a feminist perspective on trafficking of women and girls into prostitution. Data include numbers from many different regions in the world. Estimates run as high as 2 million women and girls trafficked every year. Data support the premise that human trafficking is a gendered business, a backlash against feminism, according to one well-known author. The impact of globalization on sex trafficking is then explored. Countries are categorized as origin points, transition points or destination points. The classifications of numerous countries are reported, some of which fit into all three categories. International and national laws and agreements regarding human trafficking and particularly sex trafficking are reported in the next section. Two case studies are then reported: Ukraine and the Philippines. A summary and conclusions end the essay. Bibliography lists 50 sources.
