The UN Office on Drugs and Crime (UNODC) launched the 2014 edition of the Global Report on Trafficking in Persons today. The report "covers 128 countries and provides an overview of patterns and flows of trafficking in persons at global, regional and national levels, based on trafficking cases detected between 2010 and 2012 (or more recent). The Global Report 2014 highlights the role of organized crime in trafficking in persons, and includes an analytical chapter on how traffickers operate. The worldwide response to trafficking in persons is also a focus of this edition of the Global Report."
The first Global Report mandated by the General Assembly was published in 2012. UNODC and UN GIFT produced an initial report in 2009.
