Research into Action: The U.S. Department of State’s Trafficking in Persons Report and U.S. Foreign Assistance Programming

The U.S. Department of State’s Trafficking in Persons Report, now in its 23rd year, is a global reference point for governments, civil society and citizens leading the fight against trafficking in persons. It is also a guide for the diverse programming that the U.S. government supports annually to combat TIP internationally through agencies including the U.S. Agency for International Development, the U.S. Department of State’s Office to Monitor and Combat Trafficking in Persons and the U.S. Department of Labor’s Bureau of International Labor Affairs.  

We invite you to join Winrock International for a webinar on THURSDAY, JULY 27, 2023, 10-11 a.m. ET as we discuss the implications of the 2023 TIP Report on foreign assistance, how the TIP Report informs the programmatic priorities and decisions of USG agencies working to counter TIP, and how the counter-trafficking community can support governments to address the recommendations.

 We will be joined by a distinguished panel of guests from U.S. agencies who will speak about their experiences and processes for using the TIP Report to inform programming:
