21 September 2021 – Today, NEXUS Institute’s Senior Researcher and Technical Expert, Rebecca Surtees, presented the recently published Practitioner Guide Series on trafficking victim identification, protection and reintegration at the 7th Annual Meeting of the Bali Process Working Group on Trafficking in Persons (WG-TIP). This Practitioner Guide Series, conducted by NEXUS Institute in partnership with the Regional Support Office of the Bali Process (RSO) supports the important and life-saving work of anti-trafficking practitioners in Bali Process Member States by providing them with state-of-the-art evidence and learning on victim protection, as well as guidance on how to better support trafficking victims.
Each Practitioner Guide distills and presents existing research and evidence from the perspective of trafficking victims, as well as practitioners, and also provides practical guidance for practitioners to operationalize in their work.
This learning is presented in a succinct and accessible format to help practitioners better understand key issues and challenges and to serve as a resource for their work and on-going learning. Each Practitioner Guide serves as a stand-alone resource that can be operationalized in anti-trafficking work. As a series, these Practitioner Guides offer a comprehensive and holistic overview of key issues and challenges in the protection of adult and child trafficking victims.
NEXUS Institute will continue its work with the Regional Support Office of the Bali Process (RSO) in the coming period to develop further Practitioner Guides, as well as capacity building materials to support the operationalization of the series.
