The U.S. State Department has released its annual Trafficking in Persons Report for 2012. Secretary of State Clinton described the Report in a statement, saying "This Report is a guide for our work. In the past decade, a global community of governments, non-governmental organizations, and countless other institutions and individuals have brought attention to this often-hidden crime. Through the work of many, this Report provides a clear and sobering analysis of the state of modern slavery. It tells us which governments are making progress, which innovations are working best, and how we can strengthen our efforts to bring an end to this crime." The full Report is available here.
