Di Tommaso, Maria, I. Shima, S. Strøm, and F. Bettio (2007). "As bad as it gets:well being deprivation of sexually exploited trafficked women" Paper presented at the 4th annual conference of the HDCA, 18-20 September 2007, New York, USA.

The aim of this paper is to use the sub-sample of sexually exploited women in order to explore the relationship between their well being deprivation, their personal characteristics, and their working locations. We use the theoretical framework of the capability approach to conceptualize well being deprivation and we estimate a MIMIC (Multiple Indicators Multiple Causes) model.
