Event description

Description

Trafficking in persons is considered to be the fastest growing, global illegal enterprise in the 21st century, second to drug trafficking. The Palermo Protocol promotes international cooperation on counter-trafficking, criminalising trafficking and punishing the traffickers, and to protect and assist the 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. Based on the outcomes from the 15th Informal ASEM Seminar on Human Rights and Trafficking in Persons, the objectives of the panel session are to:

  • Exchange best practices and lessons learnt from across Asia and Europe for taking a rights-based approach to protecting and rehabilitating trafficking victims
  • Provide the current state-of-play on the advances made across ASEAN in the implementation of the new ASEAN Convention Against Trafficking in Persons, Especially Women and Children
  • Identify opportunities for multi-stakeholder cooperation on victim protection and assistance, both within and between the two regions.
