The purpose of this Web site is to bring Government and NGOs in the East Asia and Pacific together to cooperate and learn from each other’s experiences in their efforts to combat human trafficking. This Web site has country-specific information such as national laws and action plans and contact information on useful governmental agencies. It also has a description of NGO activities in different countries and their contact information.
In the Asian Regional Initiative Against Trafficking (ARIAT) meeting in 2000, and in other international initiatives, the participants proposed to promote cooperation and partnership among their governments, NGOs, international organizations, private sector, and civil society organizations in prevention, protection, reintegration and prosecution aspects of trafficking in persons. It was suggested that countries should build regional cooperation networks, including cooperation through the Internet, to combat the issue of human trafficking. As a result of the unanimous recommendation of the ARIAT meeting, this Web site was supported by the United States of America Department of State between 2001 and 2008.
The HumanTrafficking.org project is being implemented by the Academy for Educational Development (AED).
