Trafficking in Persons Report 2015

Yesterday the U.S. State Department released this year's Trafficking in Persons Report, which reflects the Department's assessment of the human trafficking situation worldwide and provides a narrative for each country, summarizing and evaluating their government's progress in preventing trafficking, prosecuting suspects, and protecting victims.  The report also offers an excellent overview of the global causes of human trafficking within supply chains and in its various forms, including sex trafficking, forced labor, bonded labor or debt bondage, involuntary domestic servitude, and the recruitment and use of child soldiers.  It includes statistics and provides links to related reports by the United Nations and other organizations.  This is a great resource for law students or anyone interested in research, practice, or advocacy related to human trafficking.
