Activities

Current Projects:


RETURN, RECOVERY AND REINTEGRATION OF TRAFFICKED VICTIMS IN INDONESIA
Year 2005-PRESENT

This project develops effective and sustainable rehabilitation and reintegration support mechanisms among Indonesia's government entities, including the Indonesian Embassy and Consulates in Malaysia, and NGOs, catering to the diverse needs of trafficked victims returning home. It provides protection, return transportation, comprehensive medical and psychological care and reintegration assistance to trafficked victims in Indonesia. Activities include support for the establishment of a Recovery Center, NGO-run shelters, psychosocial support, educational classes, skills development, returns, legal assistance and reintegration packages/supplements.  

As of April 2007, over 2,200 victims of trafficking have been provided with direct assistance through this program.


 ONE-STOP CRISIS CENTRE FOR EMERGENCY CARE AND RECOVERY OF TRAFFICKED VICTIMS IN INDONESIA
Year 2005 – present

The project has established the first free medical recovery center, designed for the victims of human trafficking in Indonesia. The official opening took place on 10 June 2005 at the Kramat Jati Police Hospital in Jakarta. IOM cooperates with the National Police, local NGOs and faith-based organizations. The establishment of the Recovery Center is a serious step forward for the National Police in fighting the modern day form of human slavery. The center consists of a one-stop crisis center to provide services to all victims of violence and an in-patient facility especially for victims of trafficking. The admitted patients are given comprehensive medical services, including psychological care, testing for sexually transmitted infections (STI) with the patients' permission. The in-patients are put under the care and supervision of doctors and social workers, in the recovery center. After receiving medical services, the IOM with its non-governmental organization partners and faith-based organizations, facilitates the patient's return and reintegration home.  IOM also provides direct assistance to victims of trafficking through Police Hospitals in Surabaya and Makassar.


ENABLING COMMUNITIES TO COMBAT CHILD TRAFFICKING THROUGH EDUCATION (ENABLE)
Year 2004-2008

This project aims to strengthen local capability to expand access to quality basic education for children at risk of being trafficked, or those who have been trafficked for exploitive purposes, such as commercial sexual exploitation or domestic service. With an emphasis on education, this project aims to build the capacity of the Ministry of National Education (MONE) to address child trafficking.

The project supports communities in West Java, D.I.Yogyakarta, East Java, West Kalimantan, and Batam to improve access to and quality of formal and informal education using the Enabling Community Action model. Likewise, it supports communities to promote local solutions to combat child trafficking using the Positive Deviance (PD) approach.

Under this project, the return, recovery and reintegration needs of trafficked children are also addressed. Trafficked children who have been rescued are referred for recovery services at the Recovery Center. IOM works with the victim to develop individualized case management plans that take into account the age and interests of each child, as well as, his/her family's readiness and interest to accept her back.


PILOT RESEARCH PROJECT FOR THE IMPROVED COLLECTION OF DATA ON TRAFFICKING IN PERSONS AMONG ASEAN COUNTRIES YEAR 2005 – 2007

ASEAN member countries are always looking for ways to improve their response to trafficking in persons. However, these efforts are being held back by a lack of relevant, reliable data on trafficking. Recognizing this problem, in 2005, the ASEAN member countries commissioned IOM to conduct a pilot research project to identify “best practice” in data collection on trafficking, and to prepare a situation report on data collection by government agencies in four ASEAN member countries ( Cambodia, Indonesia, the Philippines and Thailand).

This report presents the findings of that research and reflects the work of four national research teams, based in Phnom Penh, Jakarta, Manila and Bangkok. It analyses information obtained through reviews of the existing literature, interviews with government officials, and examination of government documents, such as intake forms and annual reports. The report would not have been possible without the assistance and cooperation of the four host governments –Cambodia, Indonesia, the Philippines and Thailand.
