The Trafficking In Persons Report (TIP Report) was created by the United States in order to rate other counties on how well they were preventing human trafficking. A three tier system was created and evaluates these counties. Tier one is the highest rating and means that that country is in compliance with all human trafficking laws. Tier two represents some work needing to be done. Tier two watch list signifies that the country has a long way to go, but should not be placed on Tier three. Tier three means that the country is far from perfect on Human Trafficking law compliance and the United States will be placing sanctions on them. This poster explains the report and offers examples.
