Project Description

This project will evaluate Australia's response to the trafficking of persons, particularly women and children, from the perspectives of criminal justice, international human rights law and migration law. It will also address the broader issues concerning the regulation of forced migration in Australia and the Asia-Pacific region. The project will develop a practical training program for Australian government agencies and non-governmental organisations involved in combating trafficking. This will help in safeguarding Australia from organised transnational crime. It will enhance Australia's international and regional reputation by providing legislative and policy models to combat trafficking.
