Good Intentions are Not Enough: Four Recommendations for Implementing the Trafficking Victims Protection Act by Dina Haynes
In the year 2000, Congress proudly signed into law the Trafficking Victims Protection Act (TVPA), with one goal in mindprotecting victims of human trafficking by working to eliminate human trafficking in the United Stated and around the world. Fully eight years after the passage of the TVPA, while the law itself has the potential to be quite effective, it remains to be effectively implemented. Put simply, human trafficking appears to be increasing as traffickers discover how lucrative and easy it is to enslave another human being, and while prosecutions of traffickers in human beings have increased, that slim risk of punishment has not been enough to make a dent in the phenomenon, touted in the media as modern day slavery.
