Sex Trafficking and Human Rights: The Status of Women and State Responses … demonstrates that state responsiveness to human trafficking is shaped by the political, social, cultural, and economic rights afforded to women in that state. “Where women had cultural, political and economic rights, systems actually took human trafficking seriously as a crime and tried to fix it. To the extent those three things didn’t exist, the systems cared less about it and worried about making the international actors happy but not really changing things on the ground,” says UCI professor of political science and law Charles Anthony Smith of the book’s genesis.
