Journal of Trafficking, Organized Crime and Security
Available in e-editions
The Journal of Trafficking, Organized Crime and Security (JTOCS) is an endeavor to understand the basic structure of criminal organizations, the trends and patterns of different forms of trafficking, and the structural and functional mechanism that reproduces and reinforces the processes that perpetuate the phenomenon considering trafficking not as discrete events that are unconnected, but to scrutinize them within the wider framework of human insecurity as structurally dogged based on the theoretical research and empirical evidence from cross-country study.
The journal also aims to include research articles that analyze the roles and functions of the formal and voluntary agencies that are involved in combating trafficking within the current international security debate. The inclusion of structures of violence, high degrees of resilience, a remarkable degree of adaptability, and the role of human agency within this re-conceptualization provides a manageable framework from which human insecurity can be considered, and the magnitude of violence from trafficking may be understood and examined.
The journal broadly covers areas, but not limited to, including the linkages between trafficking; smuggling and slavery, sex trafficking: role of perpetrators; pimps; clients and victims, labor trafficking, child and teen victims in trafficking, trafficking for sham marriages; forced begging and domestic servitude, trafficking and insecurity: identifying and supporting the victims, drug trafficking, trafficking in organs; tissues and cells, trafficking in wildlife, endangered species and natural resources, trafficking in arms and ammunition, politics and discourses surrounding trafficking, trafficking as a business: profit; costs and risks, technology and trafficking networks, traffickers and their organizations, strategies against trafficking: role of the security sector; government and non-government organizations, measures to combat trafficking, trafficking laws and regulations etc. This journal is highly interdisciplinary, involving subject areas such as political science, law, environmental study, sociology, anthropology, social work, criminal justice, psychology, medical field, and many others.Instructions for contributors:
