The Government of the Republic of Indonesia is taking action, in collaboration with the ILO, through various projects, to address the problem of trafficking in persons for forced labor and sexual exploitation.
The most recent of the ILO Jakarta projects and sub-regional in scope, the aim of this UK DFID-funded project is to address the needs and concerns of the domestic workers in Indonesia and the Philippines, both nationally and internationally, as they are the most vulnerable to forced labor and trafficking.
This will be done through an integrated program of: i) law and policy development; ii) advocacy and research on the issue; iii) outreach and empowerment of domestic workers at national and international levels; and iv) targeted interventions to respond effectively to reports of forced labor and trafficking affecting domestic workers. To assist in the initial situational analysis on Indonesia, the ILO, in collaboration with the Ministry for Justice and Human Rights, has commissioned a study to map forced labor and human trafficking for labor and sexual exploitation from, through, and within, Indonesia. ILO-IPEC Project on Combating Child Trafficking for Labor and Sexual Exploitation in South and South-East Asia - Phase II (TICSA II).
The sub-regional ILO IPEC TICSA II project complements the new project. Covering six countries, the Indonesia component of the TICSA project was endorsed by the National Steering Committee on IPEC in June 2003, and is now under implementation. The TICSA project aims to contribute to the elimination of trafficking in children, and women's labor and sexual exploitation, in Indonesia . This will be done by: i) assisting children and families in high-risk sending areas, to reduce children's vulnerability to trafficking; and ii) improving the capacity of social partners to provide services to rehabilitate and reintegrate child victims of trafficking. It is intended that the program will provide inputs, good practices, and lessons learned that will be up-scaled under the ILO IPEC Time Bound Program.
Under the auspices of the ILO IPEC's Time Bound Project, a program on Child Trafficking has been under implementation. The objective of the program is to implement small-scale pilot interventions in the areas of prevention of child trafficking, and the rehabilitation and reintegration of child trafficking victims, with good practices being documented for replication in other regions of Indonesia . More importantly, these interventions are aimed at strengthening the development of appropriate policies on child trafficking, including improved law enforcement.
Congruent to the ILO-IPEC TICSA II project, and the ILO-IPEC TBP project on Child Trafficking, the ILO TC-RAM supports the ILO-IPEC program on Child Domestic Workers, a social phenomenon that continues to exist, leaving such children vulnerable to all forms of abuse, including neglecting their rights. The Action Program on Child Domestic Workers aims to increase community awareness on the issue, as well as harness their participation in preventing, rehabilitating and reintegrating child domestic workers into "normal" child life, like school, and play. The program directly targets child domestic workers under the age of 18 years. At the same time, it directs its advocacy and campaign strategies at employers, parents, communities, local government, legislature, the National Action Committee on the Worst Forms of Child Labor, and NGOs - for their support and action.A list of the ILO Indonesia's publications is available for download in MS Excel format.
