On Thursday, the US State Department removed Thailand from the human trafficking blacklist. Though Thailand has been a spotlight country when dealing with forced labor, the State Department made their decision based on the criteria outlined in the Human Trafficking Persons Report.
The Human Trafficking Persons Report examines 188 government’s efforts in combating modern day slavery. According to The US State Department, the trafficking in persons report is the US government’s principal diplomatic tool to engage foreign governments on human trafficking. It is also the world’s most comprehensive resource of governmental anti-human trafficking efforts and reflects the US Government’s commitment to global leadership on this key human rights and law enforcement issue.
In addition to the Human Trafficking Persons Report, many countries have recently joined the global approach to ending Modern Day Slavery.
