Abstract: The global sex trade involves the trafficking of persons for the purposes of commercial sexual exploitation. There are three main forms of sexual exploitation: prostitution, the transfer of persons from one party to another for commercial sexual purposes in exchange for money or other recompense, and pornography. The primary means of securing persons for exploitation are kidnapping, sale by the victim's family, and the false promise of work. Several other factors contribute to the success of the commercial sex industry, including demand, poverty, and cultural attitudes toward women. In analyzing the role of organized crime in the global sex trade, the essay focuses on Asia, the Middle East, Latin America, Africa, Europe, and the United States. The author concludes that it is clear criminal organizations frequently traffic women and children for forced prostitution and that these organizations provide security, support, or liaison services to pimps, brothel owners, and other mafia groups. Their involvement is essential to the efficiency and success of the sex industry. If effective countermeasures are to be developed and implemented, a more thorough knowledge of the role organized crime plays in this illicit market is essential. 129 notes
