Trafficking in Persons Report June 2012


Date of publication:  19 Jun 2012 Publisher:  U.S. Department of State Publication type:  Report / Study / Data

This year’s Trafficking in Persons Report focuses on how to make victim protection — part of the 3P Paradigm of prevention, prosecution, and protection — most effective for helping survivors get their lives back on track.There are specific guides and examples of what victim protection looks like when it succeeds, as well as when it fails. But if a single notion should guide the way governments and caregivers come to the aid of victims, it is the goal of restoring what was lost and providing meaningful choices for the path forward. And that requires listening to their experiences and incorporating their perspectives, to make a reality of the concept “nothing about them without them.” The Report tells readers that some governments are doing this well, using practices that work and making needed resources available. It also tells that some governments are treating victims as criminals or ignoring them entirely. Ultimately, it tells that everyone must do more, and that we do not yet have the solutions that will eradicate this crime once and for all. But every day, with the commitment of governments and civil society, the private sector and concerned individuals, those solutions are increasingly within reach.
