About the program:
ASEAN–Australia Counter Trafficking (ASEAN-ACT) continues Australia’s long running collaboration with ASEAN and its member states to end trafficking in persons (TIP) in our region. ASEAN-ACT works to support ASEAN Member States (AMS) to implement the ASEAN Convention Against Trafficking in Persons, Especially Women and Children (ACTIP). The program works primarily on strengthening the justice sector response to human trafficking, while opening up new partnerships with allied government agencies, civil society and business. It engages all 10 ASEAN Member States in some capacity and continue national-level programming in Cambodia, Indonesia, Lao PDR, Myanmar (currently on hold), the Philippines, Thailand, and Vietnam.
The overarching goal that ASEAN-ACT contributes to is that ASEAN Member States have effective justice systems that provide just punishment of traffickers and protect the rights of victims. Three interrelated end-of-program outcomes (EOPOs) contribute to the achievement of this goal by 2028:
- EOPO1: ASEAN’s planning, monitoring and reporting of ACTIP implementation is increasingly effective and advances the protection of victim rights.
- EOPO2: AMS justice and related state agencies are increasingly capable of implementing their ACTIP obligations, in particular those that uphold victim rights.
- EOPO3: AMS justice and related state agencies’ policies and practices are influenced by relevant stakeholders and better aligned with ACTIP, especially in connection to victim rights obligations.
In implementing the ACTIP, the Senior Officials Meeting on Transnational Crime has led the development of a cross-sectoral, cross-pillar action plan with various ASEAN Sectoral Bodies/ASEAN Organs (ASBs) that resulted in the Bohol TIP Work Plan 2017-2020 (BWP). The BWP is used by the ASBs as a reference in developing initiatives related to TIP under their respective work plans.
To support the implementation of BWP, the ASEAN Intergovernmental Commission on Human Rights (AICHR), as one of the ASBs, has endorsed a project on AICHR-SOMTC Annual Course on TIP: Community Policing Approach to Victim Identification and Prevention of Trafficking in Persons. This project is part of AICHR 2020 Priority Programmes that was approved by the ASEAN Foreign Ministers’ Meeting in 2019. This project is implemented by AICHR Indonesia as the implementing agency and supported by ASEAN-ACT. It contributes to the implementation of BWP and is aligned with ASEAN-ACT’s outcomes, particularly EOPO1.
As part of the project, a capacity building event was conducted virtually on 23-25 August 2021 with more than 100 participants from all ASEAN Member States (AICHR Capacity Building). To sustain the initial gains from the AICHR Capacity Building and institutionalize community policing and human rights-based approaches, ASEAN-ACT is seeking a consultant (individual or firm) to develop a training manual on community policing.
The project aims to build the capacity of frontline officers in using community policing approaches to counter TIP, particularly with respect to victim identification and community prevention. The project will draw on findings from a workshop conducted by AICHR, with support from ASEAN-ACT in August 2021 on community policing and TIP to draft training manual on community policing approach to victim identification and prevention of TIP.
The draft training manual will be submitted to AICHR for validation and endorsement in November 2021. The training manual aims to serve as a reference for the frontline officers of AMS in developing and/or improving the community policing approaches to TIP in their respective countries. Moreover, the training manual will document the existing use of community policing approach to victim identification and prevention of TIP by AMS as gathered during the AICHR Capacity Building and other perspectives from the international community.
