As Samantha Power and Philip Gourevitch did for genocide, Skinner has now done for modern-day slavery.

Human Trafficking and Forced Prostitution in Switzerland 
Dr. iur. Caroline Baur-Mettler:

Switzerland received critique because legal prosecution of human trafficking and encouraging of prostitution is usually sentenced without an absolute custodial sentence. Is the prevailing case law concerning human trafficking really effective? Are corresponding sentences too mild or are there pitfalls in the system of our legal proceedings that can be identified? Answers can be found through the analysis of case law in the field of human trafficking and encouraging of prostitution of the years 2007-2011.

Enough descriptions of the miserable living conditions of victims of human trafficking exist already. Do only women with disastrous backgrounds get exploited? Or are maybe all prostitutes victim of human trafficking? Numerous interviews held with prostitutes and victims of human trafficking allow for scientifically based evidence to be revealed.
