This concluding chapter considers questions of knowledge, power, and human rights through a transnational feminist lens. The work of mapping the discursive landscape and the regimes of knowledge through which a human rights issue like sex trafficking becomes real to U.S. audiences entails a kind of transnational feminist methodology. Transnational feminism can offer a useful methodological tool to mapping how power works to shape social norms and realities by pressing for the need to deconstruct and understand the relationship between nation making and the production of discourses of difference. By understanding race, gender, sexuality, and nation as conceptual tools that work coconstitutively, feminist methodologies can do more than simply describe experiences; they can help map the ways regimes of knowledge—concepts, frameworks, and discourses—help make social realities.

Keywords:   knowledge, power, human rights, sex trafficking, transnational feminism, nation making, race, gender, sexuality
