Abstract: By Dr. Randall K.Rogers New School University


For two years I was an English teacher and Corporate Trainer in Bangkok, Thailand. While living and working in Thailand I began a formal and informal study of the sex industry operating in the environs of my neighborhood. My neighborhood housed two of the largest sex complexes in Thailand, Nana Plaza and Soi Cowboy. Interviews with the workers at various sex-for-sale establishments, along with interviews with so-called ‘freelancers’ not working a regular job at a ‘bar’ or other sex establishment, form the empirical or qualitative content from which the paper’s conclusions are drawn. Additionally, document analysis, observation and participant observation were employed.
Along with Cleo Odzer (1994) I argue that sex workers in Thailand are not the exploited victims they are often portrayed as, but rather, they exhibit characteristics of a “new feminist” type of Asian woman. Sex worker women become a new type of liberated role model for Asian women - a new type of Asian woman emerging from restrictive Asian traditional cultural practices.

"Pathways to Commercial Sexual Exploitation --- Responding to Sexual Exploitation of Teens" Paper presented at the annual meeting of the AMERICAN SOCIETY OF CRIMINOLOGY, Atlanta Marriott Marquis, Atlanta, Georgia, <Not Available>. 2019-09-19 <http://citation.allacademic.com/meta/p201998_index.html>

Abstract: This paper will report findings from in-depth narratives of and research interviews with sexually victimized (prostituted and trafficked) teens and run away youth at high risk for such victimization. Research participants are teens interviewed in the U.S. in two large urban areas—Boston, MA and Washington DC. Narratives from the youth will form the basis of the paper that will present findings on factors (individual, family, peer, school, and community contexts) that increase the risk of involvement in commercial sexual exploitation, maintain and escalate such exploitation, and impede or empower exiting from commercial sexual exploitation (CSE).
Factors that propel involvement in and victimization via prostitution vary for boys and girls and for youth across life course stages as each confronts different lifetime challenges, opportunities, and milestones. This paper will present the perspectives of teen boys’ and girls’ who have been prostituted or who are at risk for prostitution or CSE and make recommendations for justice system response.

Abstract: This research integrates Social Value Orientations (SVO) with Network Exchange Theory (NET), which previously assumed only a narrowly rational actor. Previous SVO research shows that people often do not follow the model of the narrowly rational actor. SVO literature identifies three types of orientation to rational action, determined by how actors value outcomes for self and other. Only one of these, the individualist, corresponds to the self-interested, rational model. By contrast, the prosocial actor seeks to maximize joint outcomes and equality while the competitor seeks to maximize differences between self and other. While SVO research has generally focused on social dilemmas, this research places the three types of actors in equal, weak and strong power exchange structures. Experimental results show that prosocials’ actions are indistinguishable from activities of proselves in all three types of exchange structures. These results strongly suggest that social value orientations interact with social situations strongly affecting behavior in some, such as social dilemmas, and others, such as exchanges, not at all.

Abstract: A hallmark of Russian foreign policy under Putin has been the repeated attempts to position Moscow so that it can benefit from rivalries between two (or more) other countries. This was most in evidence in the lead-up to the recent war in Iraq. But this approach has also characterized Putin's foreign policy toward a number of other issues. How well, though, has this foreign policy approach worked for Russia? This paper will explore this question through 1) a discussion of why the Putin administration has made this type of diplomacy such a central feature of its foreign policy; 2) an examination of how--as well as how successfully--Moscow has applied this foreign policy approach in several cases; and 3) an assessment of the oveall strengths and weaknesses of this foreign policy approach for Moscow.

5. Jackson, Shelly. "Victims Services for Financial Exploitation and Hybrid Financial Exploitation" Paper presented at the annual meeting of the ASC Annual Meeting, Palmer House Hilton, Chicago, IL, <Not Available>. 2019-09-19 <http://citation.allacademic.com/meta/p666422_index.html>
Publication Type: Individual Paper
Abstract: There is little research on the consequences associated with financial exploitation generally, and hybrid financial exploitation specifically. However, there is a strong belief that the consequences are devastating for these victims, although the consequences may be different for each type of victimization. Furthermore, little is known about what services these victims need and whether there are available services/programs to respond to these victims. A national needs assessment is being undertaken to determine existing services (either VOCA or non-VOCA funded) for victims of financial exploitation and hybrid financial exploitation. If no services or programs exist, inquiry will determine what services these victims might need. Furthermore, where programs are lacking, inquiry will be made into potential barriers to serving these victims. The needs assessment will be based on interviews with Victims of Crime Act (VOCA) administrators in each state and the District of Columbia. This presentation will discuss results of the needs assessment.
