Sex Trafficking: A Private Law Approach examines existing and potential causes of action against sex traffickers, in order to outine the argument for fair and effective private law remedies. Combining a theoretical inquiry about the borders of liability in torts and restitution with a political commitment to protecting the interests of victims of sex trafficking, this book offers a comparative doctrinal and socio-legal analysis of the effectiveness of private law remedies. Tsachi Keren-Paz innovatively and convincingly makes the argument that all those directly involved in violating the rights of victims of sex trafficking should compensate them for their losses, and make restitution of the profits made at their expense. Sex Trafficking will be invaluable to both academics and practitioners concerned with prostitution, modern slavery and trafficking, as well as those with interests in private law theory and practice.
