Recognizing the growing number of young people trafficked for forced labor, International Organization for Adolescents (IOFA) is working to educate and empower those at risk in both source and destination countries. One of its most concerted efforts has been in the Baltic countries of Estonia and Latvia. To this end, the Capstone team has compiled a compendium of resources that will assist IOFA and its partners in their work on youth trafficking in Estonia. The compendium includes the following tools: a literature review documenting background information on the problem; a summary of news reports and current data; cases of trafficked youth; and research instruments that can be used to survey and interview knowledgeable organizations.
