This week the U.S. Department of State released their 2011 Trafficking In Persons (TIP) report.
What can you use the TIP for?
The TIP is a good resource for trafficking information in countries all over the world. The 2011 report there are 184 countries listed and ranked. If you want to know about trafficking in your own country or somewhere you are travelling to you can read individual Country Narratives which include sections on
- General overview
- Prosecution information
- Protection information
- Prevention information
This is also a great resource for students conducting research on human trafficking.
Is your country included in the report? What are your thoughts on their conclusions and recommendations?
