The focus of this chapter is on transnational mobility and formations of patriarchy in the cross border trafficking of women for sexual exploitation. It draws on the findings of an empirical study, conducted between January 2009 and May 2010, and based on an examination of selected Crown Prosecution Service completed trafficking cases in England and Wales. It argues that the collapse of the former Eastern bloc produced economic and social conditions conducive to sex trafficking, underpinned by patriarchy in certain areas. The chapter focuses on how, in a globalised world, transnational mobility is key to the modus operandi of cross-border sex traffickers, while distant and local formations of patriarchy intersect in racialised prostitution industries.
