Event description

Description

Trafficking in persons is a serious crime and a gross violation of human rights. The Palermo Protocol promotes international cooperation on counter-trafficking, criminalising trafficking and punishing the traffickers, and promotes theprotection and assistance of victims of trafficking ‘with full respect for their human rights’. Since the majority of trafficking victims are trafficked intra- regionally, regional efforts to combat human trafficking have only intensified, yet there are still challenges in anti-trafficking efforts that need addressing.

Based on the outcomes from the 15th Informal ASEMSeminar on Human Rights and Trafficking in Persons, the objectives of the panel session are to:

  • Exchange best practices and lessons learnt in Asia and Europe for applying a rights-based approach to combat trafficking
  • Identify emerging trends and challenges for inter-regional and intra-regional anti-trafficking efforts
  • Provide the current state-of-play on the advances made across ASEAN in the implementation of ACTIP & identify opportunities for a multi-stakeholder approach to counter-trafficking
