“It’s also important to address and to dismantle the infrastructure that is facilitating all of this. The online platforms, the sexual service websites, the pornography platforms where people are trafficked for forced pornography or other locations need to be dismantled or prevention measures need to be applied to make sure that these platforms are not facilitating and making this whole exploitative industry much more efficient. It’s like operating a bookstore versus operating Amazon. The difference between the speed and efficiency and scale of the online market is so tremendous that if you don’t dismantle that infrastructure, you’re going to have a very, very hard time combating it. I think there’s a number of things I could say in this, but that would be the number one thing that I think needs to go alongside of the policies around buying and selling of sex or around traffickers and how they should be punished.” Valiant Richey, OSCE Special Representative and Co-ordinator for Combating Trafficking in Human Beings” — 14 June 2022
