Anti-trafficking has become a subject of state action in which humanitarian, social and caring logics, on the one hand, and criminal law logics, on the other hand, are coupled, thereby requiring a reconciliation between their sometimes-conflicting requirements. In the practice of street-level bureaucracy, this is often solved through an institution...

According to prosecuting authorities, victims trafficked into sexual exploitation are difficult to identify; it seems even harder to find ‘appropriate’ victims willing to testify in court. This is often ascribed to ‘cultural differences’ rooted in their (supposedly) foreign origin. In our contribution, we show how counselling centres for traffickin...

Is Bruno Latour a ‘state thinker’? His intensive examination of Thomas Hobbes’ Leviathan certainly forms an important linchpin of and a link to understanding his wide-ranging and interdisciplinary work. Asking about Latour’s understanding of the state proves to be a promising approach to addressing core questions in actor-network theory, to Latour’...

Das deutsche Strafrecht unterscheidet Menschenhandel zum Zweck der Arbeitsausbeutung von Menschenhandel zum Zweck der sexuellen Ausbeutung. Unsere Untersuchungen zeigen, dass das soziale Objekt „Opfer von Menschenhandel“ trotz geschlechtsneutraler Gesetzgebung in popkulturellen Narrativen aber auch in Praktiken der Rechtsprechung stark vergeschlech...

Dezember 2002 bei „SPIEGEL online“ konsta-tierte Christoph Keese, Chefredakteur der „Financial Times Deutschland“, unter der Überschrift „Freiheit für Ostdeutschland“ das Scheitern des „Aufbaus Ost“. Für die Zukunft prognostizierte er ein fortschreitendes Auseinanderdriften der Wirtschaftskraft und der Einkommensverhäl...

In der täglichen Zeitungslektüre, beim Besuch von Online-Nachrichtenportalen oder in den Fernsehreportagen – überall scheint er präsent: der politische Extremismus. Von ›politischen Extremisten‹ ist die Rede, wenn irgendwo in der Welt ein Anschlag verübt wird, wenn Vertreter_innen eines radikalen politischen Islamismus gegen ›den Westen‹ predigen,...

Die Rede vom »Diskurs« gehört mittlerweile zum alltäglichen Sprachgebrauch - und die Diskursanalyse ist zum disziplinübergreifenden Trend mit jeweils fachspezifischen Ausrichtungen geworden. In den Sozial- und Geisteswissenschaften jedoch ist die »Stabilisierung« der diskursanalytischen Methoden genauso zu hinterfragen wie der Versuch einer Abgrenz...

Review on Bruno Latour's "Making Things Public"
Article
[I]f sexual identities are seen not so much as fixed identities, but rather as negotiated and contested across time and space, the importance of space in shaping sexual identities and subjectivities becomes obvious (Hubbard 1999, 1).

In our Research Project "Fremde im eigenen Land? Eine Studie über die Veränderbarkeit nationaler Narrative mithilfe Politischer Laboratorien" (2018-2021, funded by the Federal Ministry of Education and Research) we are asking which notions of "the nation" are involved in articulating affects regarding migration. Here's the official summary (in German): "Fremde im eigenen Land? Eine Studie über die Veränderbarkeit nationaler Narrative mithilfe Politischer Laboratorien“ (kurz: PoliLab) untersucht, wie sich die Vorstellungen kollektiver gesellschaftlicher Identität in Zeiten des Zuzugs von diversen Migrationsgruppen verändern und neu formen. Im Rahmen mehrerer politischer Laboratorien, die mit Bürgern in ganz Deutschland durchgeführt werden, werden Narrative und Aspekte einer gemeinsamen gesellschaftlichen Identität verhandelt und darauf aufbauend über verschiedene Herkunftskulturen hinweg gestaltet. Im Zentrum steht dabei wie der gesellschaftliche Zusammenhalt im Zeichen der Zuwanderung und dem Aufeinandertreffen unterschiedlicher kultureller Codes möglich ist – auch angesichts ablehnender Reaktionen. Die Fragen, mit denen sich seit der Ankunft von (temporären) Neuankömmlingen öffentlich auseinandergesetzt wird, sind grundlegend für unser Verständnis von demokratischer Teilhabe, Zugehörigkeit und Bürgerschaft. Das Projekt zielt darauf ab, den kulturellen Wandel vor dem Hintergrund von Migrationsprozessen zu analysieren und die Forschungstraditionen im Bereich Migration und Integration unter dem Vorzeichen gesellschaftlicher Pluralität zu überdenken und weiter zu entwickeln. Das Format der Politischen Laboratorien stellt dabei eine neue Forschungsmethode mit politischen, d. h. aktivierenden Implikationen dar. Projektleitung: Prof. Dr. Rebecca Pates
Project
The research project aims at examining the interactions between migrant prostitutes and institutions in charge of their control or assistance, as well as the categorization processes that take place within these institutions. Special attention will be drawn to the negotiations through which specific (foreign) sex workers are defined as genuine victims. The notion of victimhood has indeed become key to the ways in which prostitution of foreign women is being discussed in the media and the political sphere. The German and French regulatory models will serve as case studies, Germany having chosen a regulatory and France an abolitionist policy. In a context where academic research has often been caught up in national controversies over the proper regulation of the sex trade, a comparison between Germany and France offers an opportunity to assess the influence of legal frameworks on local administrative practices. The interdisciplinary team of the project is composed of French and German researchers and post-doctoral researchers specialized in issues of prostitution and trafficking. The team will contribute to the existing literature by combining an analysis of national legal frameworks and ethnographies of governmental and nongovernmental practices of control and assistance to foreign prostitutes. The confrontation between discourses and practices aims at enlightening the (elusive) use of legally available categories in daily interactions. The focus here will be on street level bureaucrats, on the partially overlapping and contradicting criteria, norms and rules they use on their work, and on the conditions under which a specific person is regarded as an offender or a victim. In so doing, this research will open a window onto broader changes in today’s security policies. Studying anti- trafficking policies will also provide a contribution to the comparative sociology of states and their agencies.
