TIP Report 2014 has been released

Each year, the US State Department releases a “Trafficking in Persons Report” (TIP Report), which represents an updated, global look at the nature and scope of trafficking in persons and the broad range of government actions to confront and eliminate it.


Countries are placed onto one of three tiers based on the extent of their governments’ efforts to comply with the “minimum standards for the elimination of trafficking”.

Belgium is ranked in Tier 1, which means it complies with the minimum standards. However, the recommendations made by ECPAT Belgium calling for a specific protection against child trafficking have been included in the report.
