‘Act to Protect and Assist Trafficked Persons’: The latest Blog on World Day against Trafficking in Persons

We have published the latest blog, ‘Act to Protect and Assist Trafficked Persons’, on the occasion of the World Day against Trafficking in Persons.

In this piece, we take a look at some of the latest developments in counter-trafficking at the global level, especially from a ‘protection’ perspective – in line with this year’s theme of the World Day.

You can access the blog by visiting our forum or clicking on this link.

What do you think about the blog? And what are your thoughts on the available protection frameworks and ways to improve these further?

We would be happy to hear from you! You can comment directly in response to our blog!…

Full Papers Now Available Online: International Seminar on Mixed Migration

Many of the full papers as presented at the International Seminar on Mixed Migration in Southeast and East Asia on 21-22 June 2017 are now available on the UN-ACT website. A dedicated page on the event has been added to ‘resources’ including the final agenda of the event as well as the papers referencing the session of their respective presentation.

The papers touch upon various dimensions of mixed migration, namely ‘flows and patterns’, ‘concepts, attitudes and policies’, ‘asylum and human trafficking’, ‘categories and the work of CSOs’, ‘gender and sex work’, ‘states and categorizations’, as well as ‘children and youth’, and represent a mix of empirical and conceptual work as well as practical experiences from the grassroots.

We hope that you find the perspectives presented of interest and relevant to your work, and would love to hear from you if you have any questions or comments!
