International News Coverage of Human Trafficking Arrests and Prosecutions: A Content Analytic Study
Unformatted Document Text:  Further research must be conducted in order to understand this dichotomy. As well, research and legislation must address the numbers of individuals, both male and female, who are initiating transport in order to secure employment in foreign lands. Southeast Asia and Asia (not including Russia) represented a significant portion of traffickers and trafficked individuals (25% - n=42 and 31% - n=51, respectively) and trafficking arrests (25% - n=39). The United States closely mirrored the statistics of Southeast Asia and Asia (not including Russia) with 39% (n=60) of the arrests, 29% (n=48) of originating traffickers, and 8% (n=13) of originating trafficked individuals. However, the United States State Department released a report in 2008 that indicates a majority of Southeast Asian and Asian countries failed to adopt the TVPA (Trafficking Victims Protocols Act), which was created by the United States. The results of this study suggest that Southeast Asia and Asia are relatively on par with American attempts at thwarting human trafficking. Although Southeast Asia and Asia have a significantly higher population than the United States, and, as such, may experience many more acts of human trafficking that go undetected, the cases analyzed by this study noted that when arrests did occur in Southeast Asia and Asia, multiple numbers of trafficked individuals were rescued, whereas few American cases of sexual exploitation resulted in the rescue of multiple victims. One possible explanation for this number differential could be a result of the propensity of Asian human traffickers to house larger numbers of individuals in one area. One case in particular 76
