This chapter begins with some background on migration and the distinction between human smuggling and trafficking. It then sets out the book's primary goal, which is to explore the link between commercial sex, the transnational movement of women to overseas sex venues, and sex trafficking, and to consider whether that linkage is as characterized by the U.S. government and the United Nations in their respective codifications of human trafficking. A secondary goal is to provide information to facilitate the development of better strategies and responses to cope with these phenomena. The remainder of the chapter describes the present study, covering the research methodology, ethical issues, validity and reliability, and limitations.

Keywords:   migration, human smuggling, human trafficking, sex trafficking, exploitation
