The exaltation of a scopic and gnostic drive: I am nearing the end of my fieldwork, and an anti-trafficking organization has invited me to attend a large planning workshop. I am sitting with many other anti-traffickers, some of them former colleagues, as well as friends and acquaintances.
The Lao government is developing its first national plan of action to combat trafficking in persons, and in this meeting we will provide input, with particular focus on monitoring and evaluation.

I happen to sit with the fifth group, which is exploring protection. Together, these five areas of policy comprise fairly standard policy responses to trafficking. Our group starts to examine the draft logframe, which will become the grand framework for combating trafficking in persons in Laos.
A logframe is a trueborn child of Enlightenment thought.
It attempts to colonize the future by identifying case-effect relationships articulated as development problems and corresponding programmatic remedies. Some participants are frustrated. We are trying to work out where activities, outputs, indicators, and outcomes belong on a piece of paper.
That the activities and outputs have already been set by the government frustrates some participants. We go back to the question of identifying victims. Nobody gives an answer.
But guidelines we need. Our discussion remains disjointed. While this goes on, I am drifting off—daydreaming. I look outside the window. During both my research and my time working for the United Nations, I have never heard anyone mention the possibility of trafficking to Si Chiangmai.
Yet earlier I paid a visit there to explore whether it would be a suitable place in which to conduct research.
After a stint of working in a garment factory in Vientiane, a friend introduced Lek to selling sex in a small bar in Si Chiangmai. In addition to being a sex worker, Lek has recently taken on the role of a part-time mamasan in If you would like to authenticate using a different subscribed institution that supports Shibboleth authentication or have your own login and password to Project MUSE, click 'Authenticate'.
