Virtual Training Workshop

Enhancing Human Security in the Asia Pacific Region


1, 2 & 8 September 2021 at 15:00 (KST)

(Composed of three sessions with scenario exercise)





According to the Palermo Protocol 2000, Trafficking in Persons involves the act of recruiting, transporting, transferring, harbouring or receiving a person through the use of force, coercion or other means, for the purpose of exploitation. Virtually every country – as origin, transit or destination – in the world is affected by human trafficking which inevitably ends up in sexual exploitation, forced labour, servitude, and removal of organs. Men, women and children of all ages can fall into the hands of traffickers in their home countries and abroad.


The whole world is on the same page in the fight against human trafficking, calling for enhanced global response to modern slavery and concerted efforts to eradicate the crime. Despite the progress made so far, however, the human trafficking crime is becoming more and more complex, taking place in a wide array of contexts and thus hard to identify the victims and the perpetrators as well. Besides, since the onset of the COVID-19 pandemic, trafficking in persons has become even further clandestine, making it more difficult to figure out the scale of the crime, recruitment and exploitation.[1]


If we were able to observe human trafficking like light passing through a prism, we would identify a varied version of the crime in different contexts which is basically the same in essence even in the pandemic context. This multifaceted criminal activity has been challenging policy makers all over the world. Importantly, the way authorities understand human trafficking has a strong impact on how frontline organizations implement the anti-trafficking response during the pandemic crisis. When they have a better and more precise understanding of what key elements the crime has, they can be better equipped to identify human trafficking incidents for the victim protection, prosecution of cases and prevention of the crime regardless of whatever technique the traffickers deploy. Combatting human trafficking also requires concerted efforts of different actors such as government agencies(law enforcement and the judiciary), NGOs, and international organizations. This means that it is vital to establish the well-designed referral mechanism at all levels among stakeholders to effectively coordinate anti-trafficking activities.


With these challenges for anti-trafficking in mind, UNITAR CIFAL Jeju and RSO of the Bali Process co-organise a virtual training workshop to facilitate the understanding of the concept of human security and human trafficking, and the 3 Ps (Protection, Prosecution, and Prevention) with practical scenario exercises. The event will finally help the invited participants share best practices and lessons learned along with professional inputs from the experts in the area of human security. Based on the shared knowledge, the participants will be able to develop a viable and practical action plan to attain some specific objectives as a way to contribute to addressing human trafficking in their respective countries.
