US State Department Trafficking in Humans Report 2013 – Ukraine

June 22, 2013

The US State Department has released its annual “Trafficking in Humans Report” with Ukraine featuring on pages 373 – 375.

All in all – whilst it is possible to split hairs – as reasonably accurate as is possible given the broad brush strokes required for a brief national overview.

As I have written previously, an effect human trafficking policy works from the following priorities:

1.  Prevention

2.  Protection/Victim Support

3.  Prosecution

If the current Ukrainian rating drop is related to a changing of policy, and thus due to a period of reorganisation, one hopes that the new policy will reflect and be funded as above.

No doubt we shall see in the 2014 report.
