Trafficking In Persons (TIP) Report

2016 Trafficking in Persons (TIP) Report
The U.S. Government’s Trafficking in Persons (TIP) Report is the world’s most comprehensive resource of governmental anti-human trafficking efforts, and it reflects the U.S. Government’s commitment to global leadership on this key human rights issue.

Changes to note in this year’s TIP report include the downgrading of Myanmar from Tier 2 status to the lower Tier 3 “watch list,” ranking it as among the worst offenders in human trafficking.

Releasing the 2016 TIP report, Secretary of State Kerry said:

“If there is a single theme to this year’s Trafficking in Persons (TIP) Report, it is the conviction that there is nothing inevitable about trafficking in human beings. That conviction is where the process of change really begins—with the realization that just because a certain abuse has taken place in the past doesn’t mean that we have to tolerate that abuse in the future or that we can afford to avert our eyes. “
