The training workshop focused on enhancing understanding of human security and human trafficking; victim-centered approaches; identifying, protecting and assisting trafficking victims; and best practices and lessons learned to develop viable and practical action plans to address human trafficking. It was attended by government officials and civil society practitioners who work on trafficking in persons.
NEXUS presented on trafficking victim identification, protection, recovery and reintegration, including the issues and challenges faced in protecting trafficking victims. This presentation was based on the NEXUS Institute and RSO Practitioner Guide Series on trafficking victim protection to support the work of anti-trafficking practitioners in Asia. The series provides easy access to high quality research and guidance on different aspects of victim protection that practitioners can use in their daily work. The Practitioner Guides focus on trafficking victim identification, trafficking victim protection and support, recovery and reintegration of trafficking victims, and special and additional measures for child trafficking victims.
