The interface between the cultural subsystem and human trafficking
MetadataShow full item record
This article aims to address the influence of cultural subsystem on criminal policy-making to counter human trafficking. Considering a systemic constructivist approach, we start from the premise that human trafficking is a hipercomplex phenomenon, as a result of the combination of several elements, produced and reproduced on various social subsystems ( economic, political, cultural, legal), which interact with each other. The goal is to demonstrate that the elements produced by the cultural subsystem, such as the moralism, patriarchy, gender discrimination and domestic violence, communicate with the criminal subsystem, pushing it to respond through criminal policies that go often against the alleged victims' interests.
