What Predicts a Country’s Ability to Prosecute and Combat Human Trafficking? Governance Indicators? Economic Success? Or does it come down to focusing on anti-Trafficking Efforts?
Sugimura, Michael Lester Takashi
Abstract: If one of the main ways that a country can increase their ability to prosecute human traffickers in accordance with the UN Anti-Human Trafficking Protocol is by increasing the capacity of law enforcement to identify and build cases against traffickers than advanced data analytics techniques can be applied to help identify potential cases of sex trafficking. In particular the increase in usage of online classified advertisement sites give law enforcement the opportunity to look for patterns which may lead to identifying potential trafficking cases.
