2018 Trafficking in Persons Report

This report summarizes human trafficking situations in the global setting. It focuses on effective ways local communities can address human trafficking proactively and on how national governments can support and empower them. Local communities are the most affected by this abhorrent crime and are also the first line of defense against human trafficking. By engaging and training law enforcement, religious leaders, teachers, tribal elders, business executives, and communities, it is more vigilant and intuitive to identify and address vulnerabilities swiftly. Proactive community-driven measures strengthen our ability to protect our most vulnerable and weaken a criminal’s ability to infiltrate, recruit, and exploit. Detailing each country’s narrative, the report reflects in useful recommendations which aims to reduce as well as eliminate human trafficking and its by-product issues from human society.
