Trafficking in Persons (TIPS) Report (2013)

June 2013

Luis CdeBaca (U.S. Ambassador-at-Large to Monitor and Combat Trafficking in Persons): “Successful victim identification is the starting point to stopping this crime… . That’s why the 2013 Report focuses on the importance of effective victim identification, and on those approaches and policies that have succeeded in bringing victims out of the darkness of exploitation. The Report outlines specific steps officials should take… to make sure the victims of this crime don’t go unrecognized… . [N]o government has perfected victim identification… . [W]hen we do look at this issue by the numbers, our successes must be measured by the number of lives restored… .”
