Trafficking in Persons Report, June 2003. Reviewed by Oleg P. Turlac
Trafficking in Persons Report, prepared by the U.S. Department of State, provides current information about slavery and slave trading in the world today, including the countries of Central and Eastern Europe and the former Soviet Union. This 174-page study sheds light on worldwide trafficking in women, children, and men as a result of social conflict, natural calamities, and harsh economic circumstances. The situation in relevant countries of the world is described under three major headings: prevention, prosecution, and protection. The report will help Christians and all people of good will to familiarize themselves with the troubling facts about human trafficking. It can serve as a motivation for action to help victims of forced labor and sexual exploitation. The report can be downloaded from the Web site of the U.S. Department of State at: http://www.state.gov/g/tip/rls/tiprpt/2003/.
