Gender and Globalization in Asia and the Pacific

This chapter offers a perspective on the panoply of responses to the conditions of human trafficking as a downside of globalization. Globalization is defined in this chapter as a world-historical phenomenon that orders human beings in a differential system of rewards and exclusions—whether they are ready or not. These conditions have created a human rights crisis in Asia—human trafficking, or, the recruitment or transfer, through abduction, fraud, coercion, or violence, of human beings for the purpose of exploitation. Hence, the dominant anti-trafficking regimes offer a powerful and distorting lens through which to see how the world and people's lives are being reshaped by migration.

Keywords:   human trafficking, Asian female migrants, globalization, human rights crisis, Asia, anti-trafficking movement, migration
