    The main problem with precision agriculture -- and the hype that surrounds it -- is the faulty assumptions that it rests on.

  113. Trafficking and Prostitution Reconsidered
    New Perspectives on Migration, Sex Work, and Human Rights

    Resource Type: Book
    Published: 2005
    This collection of essays underscores the interlocking relationship between prostitution, migration and trafficking. They reveal a deep seated anxiety about borders, economic resources and the fragility of the nation-state. Far from from helping women and children become free from explotaiton, the obession with women sex workers has led to the detriment of all by excluding the questions of human rights, freedon of movement, basics such as food and shelter and a living wage. The book is a call for all those involved -- governments, aid workers and trafickees -- to go beyond a paternalistic and colonial view of these issues and deal with them in a spirit of cooperation.
