Human Trafficking and Border Control in the Global South

Human Trafficking and Border Control in the Global South

(p.128) 7 Human Trafficking and Border Control in the Global South
The Borders of Punishment

Maggy Lee

Oxford University Press

This chapter examines the dominant human trafficking discourse, norms, logics, and forms of border control that have been extended from countries of destination in the North to countries of origin in the South. It addresses the following questions: How does the dominant trafficking discourse become dispersed and institutionalized, especially through international agencies and non-state actors? How can we make sense of the novel alliances and power configurations that international agencies and non-governmental organizations bring into play in border policing in the Asian context? And how can the development of a ‘peripheral vision’ of trafficking and border control inform a truly global criminology of (im)mobility?

Keywords:   human trafficking control, border policing, discourse, Asia, criminology
