Abstract of the Paper : Of Vulnerability and Coercion : A Study of Sex Trafficking in Assam/Sawmya Ray.-Sociological Bulletin 64(3), Sept-December 2015, pp.305-324
"This is paper discusses the political, economic and socio-cultural context within which trafficking of women and girls take place for commercial sexual exploitation in Assam. Specifically, it examines the relation between existing gender norms, prevailing conflict and sex trafficking. It is based on data collected from rescued trafficked women, state and non-state anti-trafficking personnel, and case studies collected from NGOs. It argues that gendered norms intersect with existing political economy factors to doubly disadvantage women vis-a-vis trafficking, both during times of normalcy and conflict."
