ASEAN-ACT supports ASEAN Member States to implement their obligations under the ASEAN Convention on Trafficking in Persons, especially Women and Children (ACTIP).

To mark the 5-year anniversary since the ASEAN Convention Against Trafficking in Persons, especially Women and Children (ACTIP) entered into force, ASEAN-ACT has studied Trafficking in Persons Annual Reports that ASEAN Member States have published in 2020, and their approach to national reporting of ACTIP.

The Baseline Report can be downloaded here.

To support the Baseline Report, a TIP Data Toolkit has been developed to explain how to report on the 22 TIP data indicators. To see good examples from the ASEAN region of how countries are publishing trafficking data with a focus on victim-sensitive approaches, click here.

A summary of the Baseline Report findings and recommendations can be downloaded in Bahasa (Indonesian), BurmeseEnglishKhmerLaoThai, and Vietnamese

ASEAN Member States have identified the sensitive treatment of victims at every stage of a trafficking case as a priority. To assist the formal justice sector to improve the way TIP victims and witnesses are treated in the criminal justice system, ASEAN-ACT, together with partner ASEAN countries, have developed 8 victim sensitive indicators.

Implementation relies on the collection, analysis and sharing of national trafficking in persons data.

The transparent publication of national Trafficking in Persons Annual Reports ensures that the hundreds of government and non-government agencies across the ASEAN Member States that work to further the Convention’s goals and support victims have the same information to inform and improve their service delivery.
