The Asia Regional Trafficking in Persons (ARTIP) Project ended in August 2011, and was followed by the ARTIP Transition Phase. The ARTIP Transition Project formally ended on 30 March 2013. Please refer to the AusAID website for information on the successor program, the Australia Asia Program to Combat Trafficking in Persons (AAPTIP). 

 

ARTIP, an initiative funded by the Australian Agency for International Development (AusAID), commenced in August 2006 and ran for its expected 5 years. ARTIP followed on from Asia Regional Cooperation to Prevent People Trafficking (ARCPPT, 2003-2006).

A twelve month gap is anticipated between the completion of ARTIP and the start of a new Australian Government funded phase of work on trafficking in persons. Recognising the progress and achievements against trafficking in persons within the ASEAN region, the Australian Government has decided to support a Transition Phase of trafficking in persons work for up to 12 months after ARTIP's conclusion. The Transition Phase will be based on the ARTIP Project and will involve a continuation of technical support to key regional structures and dialogue forums on trafficking in persons.

The ARTIP team would like to thank all agencies and stakeholders with whom we have worked over the past five years. ARTIP could not have succeeded as a Project without the cooperation and support that we have received from the ASEAN Secretariat and ASEAN Member States, government counterparts, donors, United Nations agencies, international and non-governmental organisations and many individuals.

During the transition phase the website provided by the Project will be accessible on the world-wide web, however, it will not be updated or maintained. Please note that the information, links and documents provided on this website, in particular legal and policy documents (including sources and citations to documents), may be outdated or have been superseded by amendments.

 
   
The Project  
The Asia Regional Trafficking in Persons Project (ARTIP) was an initiative funded by the Australian Agency for International Development (AusAID). It followed on from Asia Regional Cooperation to Prevent People Trafficking (ARCPPT, 2003-2006). ARTIP commenced in August 2006 and ran for its expected 5 years, ending on 25 August 2011. ARTIP’s goal and purpose was to contribute to the prevention of trafficking in persons in the Asia region by facilitating a more effective and coordinated approach to trafficking by the criminal justice systems of participating national governments. ARTIP worked in Cambodia, Indonesia, Lao PDR, Myanmar, the Philippines, Thailand and Vietnam. ARTIP also cooperated closely with the Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN) and key regional forums on trafficking including the Coordinated Mekong Ministerial Initiative against Trafficking (COMMIT).

Trafficking in Persons and the Criminal Justice Sector

An effective criminal justice response to trafficking is essential to ending the current high levels of impunity for traffickers while ensuring security and justice for those who have been trafficked. The key elements of such a framework include a strong and realistic legal framework; capable frontline and specialist law enforcement agencies; informed and committed judges and prosecutors; a system for the quick and accurate identification of victims; and mechanisms to promote cooperation between criminal justice agencies within and across borders. At all stages, the national and regional response to trafficking should reflect internationally agreed criminal justice and human rights standards.

This website provided by the Asia Regional Trafficking in Persons (ARTIP) Project provides information and guidance on developing an effective, legal, ethical and professional criminal justice response to trafficking in persons crime. It is intended to be a tool for criminal justice agencies, policy makers, victim support agencies, donors and others committed to securing justice for victims and ending impunity for traffickers. The site also contains legal and policy resources (international, regional (South East Asia) and national (for ASEAN Member States)) as well as relevant publications.

During the transition phase the website provided by the Project will be accessible on the world-wide web, however, it will not be updated or maintained. Please note that the information, links and documents provided on this website, in particular legal and policy documents (including sources and citations to documents), may be outdated or have been superseded by amendments.
