I am writing a paper on sex traficking and this is one of the questions asked. is it the laws maybe?
Answer on What makes italy so appealing to sex traffickers?
Sex trafficking is a global industry, but in my research, the sex industry revolves mainly around Israel (where it is legal to traffic in non-Jews from Eastern Europe mainly), Portugal (a child sex trafficing and pedophilia hub), Thailand (a popular sex tourism destination).
Italy is a new one, and one that I have not yet researched.
