Abstract:

This paper engages a variety of organizational theoretical approaches in order to understand change in military policy on personnel frequenting prostitutes around bases. Military prostitution is frequently cited as a problem around military bases in Korea, the Philippines, and more recently in Bosnia. Currently, while all houses of prostitution are officially off-limits, the military implicitly condones the commercial sex industry through a variety of means such as supplying condoms and providing a courtesy patrol that escorts personnel to bars where prostitution is available. In September 2004, the Department of Defense proposed a draft amendment to the Uniform Code of Military Justice (UCMJ), which would make it a military offense to frequent a prostitute. This proposed change challenges us to think about what drives such policy change.
