On 19 July the 2022 Trafficking in Persons (TIP) report was published.

The TIP Report is the world’s most comprehensive resource of governmental anti-trafficking efforts and assesses government efforts around the world to combat human trafficking as well as highlighting strategies to address this crime and protect the victims.  This year’s report, the 22nd instalment, includes narratives for 188 countries and territories, including Ireland.

On Wednesday evening, 27 July 2022, the OLA and SMA will host a conversation with people on the ground in Ireland working towards eradicating the scourge that is Human Trafficking. This will be broadcast live via our Facebook Page at 7pm.

We will discuss the TIP report’s review of Ireland and what it means in practice.

Our panelists include:
