Human Trafficking in the World


This map shows government action to combat human trafficking and modern slavery in 177 countries with Tier 1 ranking as the highest ranking. A Tier 1 indicates that a state government has recognized the problem of human trafficking, has made efforts to address the issue, and meets the Trafficking Victims Protection Act's (TVPA) minimum standards. A country with a Tier 2 rating has not met the standards but has made efforts to do so, while a Tier 3 rating means the country has not met the minimum standards and has not attempted to do so.
What is Human Trafficking?
According to United Nations Office on Drugs and Crime: Human Trafficking defines Trafficking in Persons as the recruitment, transportation, transfer, harbouring or receipt of persons, by means of the threat or use of force or other forms of coercion, of abduction, of fraud, of deception, of the abuse of power or of a position of vulnerability or of the giving or receiving of payments or benefits to achieve the consent of a person having control over another person, for the purpose of exploitation. Exploitation shall include, at a minimum, the exploitation of the prostitution of others or other forms of sexual exploitation, forced labour or services, slavery or practices similar to slavery, servitude or the removal of organs, forced recruitment for child soldiers.
Major forms of human trafficking include: forced labor, sex trafficking, bonded labor, debt bondage among migrant laborers, involuntary domestic servitude, forced child labor, child soldiers, child sex trafficking.
How is Human Trafficking Tier placement is calculated?
The Department of State, United States of America prepared this report using information from U.S. embassies, government officials, NGOs and international organizations, published reports, research trips to every region, and information submitted to tipreport [at]
U.S. diplomatic posts and domestic agencies reported on the trafficking situation and governmental action based on thorough research that included meetings with a wide variety of government officials, local and international NGO representatives, officials of international organizations, journalists, academics, and survivors. Every U.S. mission overseas employs at least one officer covering human trafficking issues.
The Department places each country in one of three tiers as mandated by the Trafficking Victims Protection Act's (TVPA). This placement is based more on the extent of government action to combat trafficking than on the size of the problem, although the latter is also an important factor. The analyses are based on the extent of governments' efforts to reach compliance with the TVPA's minimum standards for the elimination of human trafficking.
Tier Placement as follows:
  • TIER 1: Countries whose governments fully comply with the TVPA minimum standards.
  • TIER 2: Countries whose governments do not fully comply with the TVPA's minimum standards, but are making significant efforts to bring themselves into compliance with those standards.
  • TIER 2 WATCH LIST: Same as TIER 2, but: the absolute number of victims of severe forms of trafficking is very significant or is significantly increasing; also there is a failure to provide evidence of increasing efforts to combat severe forms of trafficking in persons from the previous year; or, the determination that a country is making significant efforts to bring themselves into compliance with minimum standards was based on commitments by the country to take additional future steps over the next year.
  • TIER 3: Countries whose governments do not fully comply with the minimum standards and are not making significant efforts to do so.

Rebekah's Story - Sex Trafficking Survivor - Backyard Broadcast

Child sex

Human trafficking is the practice of buying and selling human beings. It is currently the second largest criminal industry in the world, netting over $43 billion each year (Bales, 1999). The most horrific form of trafficking is child sexual slavery. Every day, children are bought and sold for sex; and not just in developing countries. The exact numbers of victims has been debated but recent research indicated that each year in America over 100,000 children are exploited in our own cities and neighborhoods; at strip clubs, on web sites and in homes (Smith, Vardaman & Snow, 2009). Prostitution is perhaps the most common form of sex trafficking in our country, and while many view it as a victimless crime, the sad truth is that a large number of the prostitutes are merely children; the average age of entrance into prostitution being only 13 years old (Smith, Vardaman & Snow, 2009).
This has to end.
We have started a drastic plan of action creating large scale concerts, public events and media productions in order to generate enough public outrage to effect permanent societal change in our two countries.
Our empowering events provide promotion and funding for front-line task forces. These are Non Governmental Organizations's and law enforcement agencies that are fighting this war for our children's safety from predators.
We need your help, please join the revolution now!
