Abstract

Human trafficking is among the fastest growing illegal crimes in terms of both numbers and profits. For nearly two decades the Trafficking in Persons Report produced by the United States Department of State assigns tier rankings that categorize how individual countries are addressing human trafficking. The Tier Two Watch category indicates that the country is receiving funds from the United States to help combat human trafficking. However, there have been no limitations in respect to movement from this category. The research design for this study is retrospective with country information collected through the CIA World Fact Sheet. This research aims to determine which factors are related to mobility and the Tier Two Watch category.
