Reference Mini-review
US Department of State, 2013. South Sudan [Report] Trafficking in persons report 2013, pp.336-339. Accessed online.

Reports that trafficking occurs both across South Sudan's international borders and internally. Internally it is associated with population displacements, rural-urban migration and inter-ethnic abductions. Many of the victims are women and children in prostitution or domestic service in the cities, and children put to work in other ways. GRSS made negligable efforts to prevent trafficking or protect victims except in the area of recruitment to the police and army. The report recommends adoption and implementation of a national action plan to combat human trafficking.
