Asia Regional Cooperation to Prevent People Trafficking (ARCPPT) is pleased to announce the launch of its website: www.arcppt.org.
ARCPPT is a three year Project funded by the Australian Government and managed by ACIL Australia. Its goal is to contribute to the prevention of people trafficking in South East Asia. The Project is working in four countries: Thailand, Lao PDR, Myanmar (Burma) and Cambodia. The main focus of Project activities is on strengthening the criminal justice process to deal effectively with the crime of trafficking. To this end, the Project is seeking to build up national structures and capacities as well as to improve coordination and cooperation across borders and regionally.
The ARCPPT Project is based on a fundamental assumption that cooperation between three parties - the police, the courts, and victims together with the agencies that support them - is essential in order to reduce human trafficking. Cooperation will strengthen national and regional responses to trafficking. To this end, ARCPPT offers its website as a comprehensive source of information on the criminal justice sector's response to trafficking. It presents: its publications on the criminal justice sector and trafficking to download for free; an extensive list of relevant national and international laws and protocols; links to other web sites which have a particular focus on the criminal justice sector and trafficking; a thorough FAQ, answering questions regarding, gender, the criminal justice system and trafficking; as well as up-to-date information on the Project.
For more information on the website or the project, please contact the ARCPPT Information Officer, Nina Vallins, at email@example.com
