Human Trafficking: Coercion in a Time of Crisis

Today, Secretary Clinton, along with Members of Congress, released the annual Trafficking in Persons (TIP) Report. This report, which is mandated by our anti-trafficking law, analyzes the problem of modern slavery. Millions of people worldwide are held in compelled service through coercion, often in such areas as prostitution, agricultural work, or domestic service. Some of these people are vulnerable because they’ve migrated to work, but many are enslaved in their own countries.
