This chapter provides a discourse analysis of the emergence of child sexual exploitation (CSE) as a social problem in order to uncover the unchallenged modes of thought that dominate our practices and assumptions about what CSE is and how to deal with it. It first describes discourse analysis and suggests the sort of questions that such an approach raises. The chapter next describes the discursive field out of which emerged the discourse of CSE as a particular type of social problem. Afterward, the chapter turns to the discourse of CSE and the subjects of regulation that it creates. To conclude, this chapter reflects on the discursive erasures within the discourse and why it is important to still talk about prostitution.

Keywords:   discourse analysis, social problem, CSE discourse, discursive erasures, prostitution, child sexual exploitation
