U.S. Department of State

Office to Monitor and Combat Trafficking in Persons (J/TIP) “pursues policies, partnerships, and practices that uphold the ‘3P’ paradigm of prosecuting traffickers, protecting victims, and preventing trafficking,” with an emphasis on international governments’ progress. Among its sub-divisions:

Reports and Political Affairs seeks to “engage foreign governments regarding human trafficking issues” and produces the annual Trafficking in Persons Report, which ranks over 188 countries, including the U.S., on their anti-trafficking efforts.

Public Engagement manages media, government, and NGO outreach to increase public awareness and collective action. It offers a list of resources and information for individuals in the U.S. on a nonimmigrant work or travel visa.

Human Smuggling and Trafficking Center centralizes the efforts of the DOS, DOJ, DHS, and the Office of the Director of National Intelligence. The Center produces strategic assessments related to smuggling and trafficking, coordinates select initiatives, and recommends specific interagency collaborations.
