TIP: Trafficking In Persons Report 2013

US State Department has released its annual "Trafficking In Persons" Report -- also known as "TIP" Report. See how your country is doing in its fight against human trafficking:

"Ending modern slavery must remain a foreign policy priority. Fighting this crime wherever it exists is in our national interest. Human trafficking undermines the rule of law and creates instability. It tears apart families and communities. It damages the environment and corrupts the global supply chains and labor markets that keep the world’s economies thriving. We also have a moral obligation to meet this challenge head-on. Human trafficking is an assault on our most dearly held values of freedom and basic human dignity. American leadership means protecting those values at home and working to advance them around the world. We will continue to do so through our diplomacy and development efforts. ... And we will continue to do so through our Trafficking in Persons Report." --Secretary of State John F. Kerry
