Lessons from COVID-19 in responding to trafficking in persons in times of crisis
To better understand the impact of COVID-19 on human trafficking and responses to it in the Philippines, ASEAN-Australia Counter Trafficking convened two online roundtable consultations with key stakeholders.
The purpose of this Policy Brief is to capture and consolidate the experiences shared and insights offered by these counter-trafficking stakeholders in the Philippines. It addresses areas of counter-trafficking from identification and referral through to prevention, with particular attention given to the challenges of victim assistance, both as a standalone issue, as well as one that interrelates with all other areas of counter-trafficking work.
