What is the TIP Report and what does it mean?
Recently, the 2014 TIP Report was released by the United States Department of State. With that being said, it is important to understand what the report is and what it does. The report looks at the scope of human trafficking around the world and discusses the government's action to combat and stop human trafficking. Each country is graded based on a 1-3 tier based system. Tier 1 is the best ranking a country can receive. Tier 1 does not mean the country has eliminated human trafficking. It does mean that the country is working to address and combat human trafficking.
