Migrant Labor in Occupied Iraq: Neocolonial Schemes to Defraud Workers

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



Abstract:

Over the past several years, there has been growing interest among some criminologists to examine an array of war crimes committed alongside the U.S. invasion and occupation of Iraq. Indeed, much of that literature goes beyond the physical harms inflicted upon civilians, directing critical attention to the unlawful and unethical economic tactics associated with the reconstruction. This paper, correspondingly, unveils how corporations under contract with the U.S. government use privatized schemes to recruit foreign workers with the intention of defrauding them. As is typically the case with that pattern of exploitation, workers are stripped of their passports and detained: in essence, becoming a (post)modern form of forced labor. While addressing the structures of impunity that shield private contractors from criminal prosecution, the analysis considers the wider nature of globalization in which corporations play a key role in furthering neocolonial ambitions.
