A Critical Feminist Study of Sex Trafficking and Sex Tourism in Costa Rica: How Civil Society Organisations Amplify or Misrepresent Voices of Sex Workers

Abstract | Word Stems | Keywords | Association | Citation | Similar Titles



Abstract:

This critical ethnography and feminist political economy work in progress (as field research will occur in Spring 2018) analyses secular civil society organizations (CSOs) and faith-based organisations (FBOs) and their role combatting sex trafficking in Costa Rica. The project analyses patriarchal capitalist structures of sex tourism, inequalities of racialised and classed sexuality, and commodification of women’s bodies as international currency in post-colonial socio-political contexts. Complex negotiations between FBOs and men who pay for sex in Costa Rica lead to intersecting research foci of masculine identity, post-colonial politics, whiteness, and power. The project analyses complex connections of risk perception surrounding sex tourism in Costa Rica and men’s participation in sex tourism in this nation. As a unique project that straddles humanistic and social scientific research, the project has wide implications for increasingly important areas in scholarship and policy-making, most notably sex trafficking of women and minor children.
