International News Coverage of Human Trafficking Arrests and Prosecutions: A Content Analytic Study
Unformatted Document Text:  2003; Bruckert & Parent, 2004; Human Rights Watch, 2003; Surtees, 2007; Vocks & Nijboer, 2000); however, as Kelly (2002) discusses, victims may not be aware of where they were, went and currently are, which may further confuse, rather than assist, the research. Human trafficking is an underreported crime (Laczko & Gramegna, 2003). Although it receives widespread international attention in the media, it remains a low priority among authorities in many countries (Kelly & Regan, 1999; Laczko & Gramegna, 2003). Vandenberg (2007) deduces that United Nations anti- trafficking efforts are failing because the individuals stationed by the United Nations—in countries deemed in need of international assistance—are creating multi-million dollar industries that promote the demand for licit, as well as illicit, goods and services. In countries where this may be the case, human trafficking remains underreported and a low priority for local officials (Laczko & Gramegna, 2007). Human trafficking also remains underreported in countries, like Thailand, where foreign military, like the United States during the Viet Nam War, create the demand for the sex trade while on rest and relaxation tours (Phongpaichit, 1999; Williams, 1999). Since the onset of the Viet Nam War, Thailand has remained a pivot country in the global sex trade, especially in South East Asia (Williams, 1999). The accuracy and possible extent to which the American military facilitated the demand for the supply of women into the sex trade may be debatable, but the notion cannot be considered merely coincidental. However, the existence of a coincidence does not immediately suggest that every woman involved in prostitution in Thailand was trafficked and forced into participation. 9

Human trafficking is an underreported crime (Laczko & Gramegna, 2003). 
Although it receives widespread international attention in the media, it remains a 
low priority among authorities in many countries (Kelly & Regan, 1999; Laczko & 
Gramegna, 2003).  Vandenberg (2007) deduces that United Nations anti-
trafficking efforts are failing because the individuals stationed by the United 
Nations—in countries deemed in need of international assistance—are creating 
multi-million dollar industries that promote the demand for licit, as well as illicit, 
goods and services. In countries where this may be the case, human trafficking 
remains underreported and a low priority for local officials (Laczko & Gramegna, 
2007).   Human trafficking also remains underreported in countries, like Thailand, 
where foreign military, like the United States during the Viet Nam War, create the 
demand for the sex trade while on rest and relaxation tours (Phongpaichit, 1999;
