Dominican Republic

Occupying the western part of the island of Hispaniola, the Dominican Republic is the second largest Caribbean nation. The country’s post-colonial history has been turbulent including a violent dictatorship and an invasion by the United States, but since the re-establishment of democracy in the 1960s, the country has emerged as a relatively stable democratic State. Human trafficking, including for child labour and sexual exploitation, has been a violation of children’s rights persistently raised by international human rights bodies.
