FASCINATING FINDS WHILE RESEARCHING --

The movie “Taken” (2008) starring Liam Neeson followed by “Taken 2” in 2012 and “Taken 3” in 2014 started in the 2008 movie with the daughter of Liam Neeson’s character being KIDNAPPED IN PARIS FOR SALE AS A SEX SLAVE.

It didn’t take much research to ascertain that “Sex Trafficking: Inside the Business of Modern Slavery” by Siddharth Kara (Columbia U. Press 2009) is “The Bible” on the subject.

Surprises???

(A) Sex Trafficking was already the subject of a 30-page United Nations Convention Against Organized Crime (11/15/2000) buttressed by a 9-page United Nations Protocol “To Prevent, Suppress and Punish Trafficking in Persons, Especially Women and Children” (12/25/2003) and a 12-page United Nations Protocol “Against the Smuggling of Migrants by Land, Air and Sea” (1/28/2004)!!!

(B) On 3/18/2009, one of Washington DC’s “Top 5 Liberal Think Tanks” (Foreign Policy in Focus) trashed Prof. Kara’s “Sex Trafficking: Inside the Business of Modern Slavery” AND, BY IMPLICATION, TRASHED THE UNITED NATIONS (!!!) on the grounds that is it senseless to try to counter “the world’s oldest profession”!!!

(C) HOWEVER, in 2016 the United Nations published its 126-page “Global Report on TRAFFICKING IN PERSONS” (original capitalization).

(D) AND IN 2017 the United Nations released a movie entitled “Trafficked” starring Ashley Judd, Anne Archer and Elisabeth Röhm – which the U.N. Press Release said was “inspired by the harrowing stories of real women and girls profiled in the award-winning book ‘Sex Trafficking: Inside the Business of Modern Slavery’ by Harvard Professor Siddharth Kara.”

Here is a copy of the text of the 85-page U.S. Federal Statute that was enacted in 2000 and signed into law by President Clinton on 10/28/2000.
It implemented America’s participation in the U.N.’s 2000 “Convention Against Organized Crime” even before the entry into force of the 2 U.N. Protocols implementing the Convention (the 2003 Protocol “To Prevent, Suppress and Punish Trafficking in Persons, Especially Women and Children” and the 2004 Protocol “Against the Smuggling of Migrants by Land, Air and Sea.”
