A Critical Appraisal of Anti-Child Trafficking Discourse and Policy in Southern Benin
Howard, Neil Philip
Childhood: A Global Journal of Child Research, v19 n4 p554-568 Nov 2012
This article offers a critical overview of anti-child trafficking discourse and policy in Southern Benin. The article examines the major trends in interventions pioneered by the dominant institutional actors in the field, and looks at the discursive background against which they are formed. The article contrasts mainstream policy and discourse with the alternative narratives and policy suggestions pertaining at the level of the communities who find themselves targeted by the anti-trafficking establishment. It offers suggestions for the improvement of policy. (Contains 3 notes.)
