Policy Guides Workshop - March 2014, Bangkok

Project Background

In April 2013 Bali Process Ministers directed the RSO, in consultation with members, to develop guides for policy makers and practitioners focused on how to strengthen legislative frameworks to criminalise trafficking in persons and migrant smuggling.

This initiative was co-chaired by the Governments of Australia and Thailand. A drafting committee composed of experts from Australia, Thailand, Sri Lanka, New Zealand, and UNODC, with support from IOM representatives to the RSO, developed the draft guides which were shared with Bali Process members and observers for comments. In March 2014, the RSO hosted a Bali Process consultation workshop in Bangkok bringing together over 80 delegates from 35 countries along with representatives from UNHCR, IOM, and UNODC. Participants were invited to comment on the guides and to share case studies to illustrate how the policy guides would work in practice. Finalized versions of the guides were endorsed by the Bali Process Ad Hoc Group in August, 2014.
