2022 Assembly


The importance of collaboration and prevention are repeatedly emphasised in the Trafficking in Persons Report (TIP), issued 30th June, 2016.


Regarded by the United States’ State Department as ‘’…the world’s most comprehensive resource of governmental anti-trafficking efforts,” the 422 paged TIP report rates 190 nations – increased from188 in 2015, with the addition of Yemen and Libya this year – on how effectively governments are addressing the human trafficking industry.

“The purpose of this report is to enlighten, energise and empower. That is why it incorporates the insights of NGO’s, advocates and survivors with first-hand experience of this horrific crime. By issuing it, we want to bring to the public’s attention, the full nature and scope of the $150 Billion illicit human trafficking industry. We want to provide evidence and facts that will help people who are already working to achieve reforms and alleviate suffering. And we want to provide a strong incentive for governments at every level to do all they can to prevent and prosecute trafficking, identify and support victims and shield at-risk populations.’’ John F. Kerry, US Secretary of State. Please click here for more information…
