Elina Penttinen illustrates how the global sex industry feeds on complex global flows. Drawing on extensive fieldwork on the trafficking of Russian and Baltic female sex workers, she demonstrates how the embodiment and reiteration of globalization on the bodies of gendered individuals are tied to the larger processes of globalization. Appadurai's framework of landscapes of globalization is developed into a framework of shadow sexscapes in order to show how the global sex industry feeds on complex global flows and in turn operates as a form of shadow globalization.
Globalization, Prostitution and Sex Trafficking will be of interest to students and researchers of international relations, globalization and gender studies.
I discovered that issues surrounding masculinity, sexuality and embodiment had always been there in IPE-they just did not feature in the kind of IPE that I had been engaging with. This left me with little scope to ask the kinds of questions that I wanted to ask, such as: Feminist political economists have highlighted how globalisation and capitalism are not 'out there' phenomena that are materially or analytically separable from actually existing human lives but, quite the contrary, they 'impact directly and often violently on the bodies of actual people' Pettman, Feminists have thus sought to 'make visible something of the mess, pain, pleasure and pressure of everyday life' Pettman, In so doing, they have emphasised the need to explore how differences such as gender, ethnicity and sexuality are not natural essences of bodies but rather are written on bodies, so that embodied experiences and identities are intimately intertwined with uneven relations of power.
