This new report benchmarks the travel industry’s progress on fighting human trafficking and the commercial exploitation of children. Although largely based on the US jurisdiction, the report nonetheless contains significant information which will be helpful to all other jurisdictions as they consider how to engage the travel sector in collaboration to combat human trafficking and exploitation.
The report presents key findings and themes from a study of 70 companies in the travel industry on their initiatives to fight human trafficking and the commercial sexual exploitation of children.
The report establishes a way to measure progress, identifies the baseline for their engagement and highlights best practices to encourage cross-learning within the travel industry.
