The conclusion explores the limitations and effectiveness of human trafficking policy in combatting the phenomenon of human trafficking. It discusses if legislated solutions for a wicked problem such as human trafficking are impossible to obtain and if policies can only attempt to alleviate the problem. Most policy advocates argued that human trafficking policies help, but aspects of supply and demand are the main causes of human trafficking. These concepts such as poverty, abuse, gender inequality, and immigration that get to the underlying causes of push and pull factors of trafficking, are not covered in most human trafficking policies and are difficult to legislate across countries in an increasingly globalized world. The existing laws and policies were imperfect with implementation problems, but the policies were effective in many respects and better than an absence of policy. The chapter also analyzes how progress in anti-trafficking adoption and implementation was affected by the different political developments in masculinized political environments. The crime of human trafficking is always changing, and policy should be encompassing and resilient to withstand changing trends and political developments.

Keywords:   wicked policy problem, legislated solutions, policy effectiveness, masculine political environments, push and pull factors
