At least two hundred thousand women and children from South-East Asia are trafficked annually. This figure represents nearly one third of the global trafficking trade. This study reviews what is known about trafficking in the region and provides a thorough overview of the viewpoints that have been developed within South-East Asia. It also discusses problems faced in the fight against trafficking and highlights priority areas for the development and implementation of counter trafficking programmes and initiatives.



Countering trafficking in South-East Asia

Trafficking patterns and processes have connected many of the countries within as well as outside the South-East Asian region. Therefore, several responses and instruments have been developed on the international, regional and bilateral levels, while receiving countries and regions outside of the South-East Asian region have also undertaken initiatives to combat trafficking. This part of our report focuses on the trafficking situation within the South-East Asian region and the diverse cooperative and regional initiatives developed to counter it.
