International News Coverage of Human Trafficking Arrests and Prosecutions: A Content Analytic Study
Unformatted Document Text:  news media because opportunities to access data regarding specific acts of human trafficking are limited. With such difficulties in mind, the researcher crafted a study that would allow specific cases of human trafficking to be analyzed and coded for varying attributes of the trafficker, the trafficked individual and the trafficking act. Data collection In order to analyze specific cases of traffickers, trafficked individuals and trafficking acts, I began by compiling English language electronic newspaper articles reporting cases of human trafficking arrests and prosecutions via the Google News Archives (GNA) on-line search engine. Over several weeks in September and October of 2008,the GNA search engine was utilized as a data collection tool. GNA was used because it offered a perspective regarding the number of articles per year over several decades. Within the annual timeline, GNA provided a monthly register of newspaper articles relating to the specific searched topic. In essence, GNA presented a yearly tally of articles pertaining to a searched topic and within each specific year also provided a monthly tally of articles. Furthermore, GNA provided results from English-language newspapers across the globe and allowed me to amass a collection of data with an international perspective. This factored greatly into the decision to employ GNA as a search engine because this factor allowed for a compilation of newspaper articles that varied greatly from options presented by other on-line search engines. 25
