Deployment of international peacekeepers has had the unintended consequence of stoking demand for thousands of women and girls trafficked to the Balkans in the last several years, and has enriched organized crime syndicates that could use illegal profits to finance weapons for paramilitaries or enemies of the mission. Dr. Mendelson argues that serious implementation of “zero-tolerance” policies on trafficking will require instilling a sense of urgency about the problem in the US military and civilian contractor community, as well as inside NATO and the UN.
