Charles Anthony Smith & Heather M Smith (2010) Human Trafficking: The Unintended Effects
of United Nations Intervention. IN International Political Science Review
Looks at the UN involvement in Kosovo, Haiti, and Sierra Leone
Argues that UN involvement has the unfortunate and unintended effect of increasing
the rates of human trafficking in these crisis areas while also the force determines the
magnitude of the increase in human trafficking
Smuggling: the method by which people are moved across borders
Trafficking: a more complex set or processes involving labor exploitation in the
destination country.
Emergence of Human Sex Trafficking Rings
Some argue than human trafficking is considered simply a morally suspect business

Recent research relies on how human trafficking is a violation to human rights
From an economic perspective individuals believe human trafficking occurs in response
to a demand.
Effects on United Nations Intervention on Civil Crises

UN loses interests once the conflict becomes threatening
Promotes a false peace that leads to the reoccurrence of issues, in which they intervene
but fail to help combatants
Limitations to Both Literatures
One issue is the general human trafficking literature suffers from data limitations that
prevent rigorous theory testing.

They examine the ways in which the introduction to global peacekeeping force may
alter domestic demand and create conditions for the introduction and expansion of a
market in the trading of humans.
Any factor that serves to increase domestic demand for prostitution will lea to
expansion of human sex trafficking rings.
Foreign military presence is a large understudied factor that influences sex trafficking
1. observation that supports the theory is that foreign soldiers and ancillary support
networks that surround them use prostitutes.

trafficking occurring.
3. Also any UN presence also increases the occurrence of international human
trafficking entrepreneurs in which criminals will migrate their business elsewhere.
UN peacekeeping force into a crisis area will serve to increase the rate of human
trafficking into that crisis area. As additional military personnel are bought in, some will
seek out prostitutes.
Where the UN force begins with a large number of troops, we should witness a dramatic
increase in human trafficking, where UN sends in a relatively smaller force we would
expect to see a small increase.
Kosovo Case Study
March 1998 Hostility between the Serbian Military Police, the Yugoslav Federal Army,
and the Kosovo Liberation Army, were critically high.
Serbian military police massacred 12k Kosovar Albanians, which led to more than 230k
people being displaced and protests
March-June 1999 NATO conducted a bombing campaign against Serb Forces which led
to a large peacekeeping force entering Kosovo after the campaigned ended.
