Abstract

Peacekeeping operates within a context of neo-liberal power and capital. This context draws on and reflects older traditions of colonialism and patriarchy that valorize unequal treatments of race, gender, class, and culture. In this article, the authors address the connection between peacekeeping, prostitution, and sex trafficking. They raise questions of how the processes of local-regional-global interactions, identity-formations, and institutional learning interrelate in terms of sex trafficking overseas and the role played by peacekeepers in maintaining such desire industries.
