The Bali Process on People Smuggling, Trafficking in Persons and Related Transnational Crime

APC (Asia-Pacific Consultations on Refugees, Displaced Persons and Migrants)

The Australian Government and UNHCR organized a regional meeting on refugees and displaced persons in 1996 that was attended by representatives of 24 countries. The scope of the agenda was expanded the following year to include migration, reflecting the migratory situation in the region and continued under the name of Asia Pacific Consultations (APC).

The APC offered a much broader scope of discussion than the Manila Process and was attended by a larger group of participants. While the Manila Process focuses on irregular migration and trafficking, APC served as a forum to discuss a variety of issues relating to population movements in the Asia Pacific region.

The APC is dormant at the moment and its website is no longer active.
