Studenteropgave: Semesterprojekt


Abstract/Summary: In this project we have attempted to uncover how globalization has affected trafficking of women for prostitution. We have also investigated how the objectified view on women plays a big role concerning trafficking. We have investigated the course of trafficking, and in addition, on what basis trafficking occurs, how it unfolds and what is done to prevent it. We have used feminist theory to explain the sexual exploitation of women, and compared two NGOs to show what is done to exterminate trafficking. We have found that the sexual exploitation of women is a consequence of the patriarchal domination, and also that globalization is an significant negative factor in the expansion of trafficking. All of this is angled with a focus on Moldova.
