Hot off the presses: The 2011 TIP report!
The Trafficking in Persons report is the benchmark resource for the state of modern-day slavery and human trafficking in the world. Produced annually by the U.S. State Department, the report gives almost every country in the world a ranking, assessing how affective governments are at addressing modern slavery.
Last year was the first time the U.S. was included in the TIP report. (FYI: the U.S. was ranked Tier 1—the highest possible rating. This year, the U.S. is again ranked Tier 1.) Browse through the country narratives in the report at this link. And, stay tuned for Free the Slaves’ reaction to the 2011 TIP report!
