U.S. Releases the 2022 Trafficking in Persons Report
On July 19, the Department of State released the 2022 Trafficking in Persons Report, otherwise known as the “TIP Report.” The TIP Report is the most comprehensive global resource of governmental anti-trafficking efforts and the United States’ principal diplomatic and diagnostic tool to guide international governments on human trafficking.
In this year’s report, Luxembourg remained in the top Tier 1 category as “the government continued to demonstrate serious and sustained efforts during the reporting period, considering the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on its anti-trafficking capacity.” As it does every year, the report also makes some recommendations for Luxembourg in 2022, such as sentencing traffickers to significant prison terms and ensuring convicted traffickers actually serve those sentences, among other areas.
