Regional Support Office Purpose and Objectives
The Regional Support Office of the Bali Process (RSO) was established in 2012 as a unique regional mechanism that brings together relevant policy knowledge, technical expertise and operational experience from Bali Process members and other key stakeholders to develop practical initiatives that address people smuggling, trafficking in persons and related transnational crime.
The RSO assists Members by working across four key objectives in:
- Providing specialist technical assistance to Bali Process Members, Task Forces and Working Groups.
- Developing and delivering fit-for-purpose operational capacity building activities relevant to the Bali Process’ mandate.
- Providing support in policy development and promoting best practice to improve aspects of migration management, and responses to people smuggling, trafficking in persons and related transnational crime.
- Actively engaging and promoting the RSO’s work to partners and dialogues outside of the Bali Process structure.
