Measuring and Understanding the Framing of Human Trafficking Problems in the U.S.

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



Abstract:

Eight years after the passage of federal anti-trafficking legislation in the United States, fewer incidents of trafficking have been identified than original estimates of the problem predicted. Some scholars and commentators suggest that changes in the public framing of the trafficking problem aimed at advancing particular policy agendas are to blame. Yet no studies to date have measured such a reframing process and its attendant consequences. Using a natural history of social problems model (Spector and Kitsuse, 1973) as the theoretical framework to examine the framing of trafficking, this study analyzed text from U.S. newspaper articles about human trafficking from 1990 to 2006. Findings suggest the public framing of human trafficking has changed over time corresponding with the adoption of policies focused on national security and the identification, apprehension and criminal prosecution of trafficking perpetrators.
