Panel Discussion “Life after Trafficking”

10 May, 2018 @ 5:30 pm - 7:00 pm

Media stories, NGO campaigns and politicians’ speeches usually focus on the horrors of life in trafficking and on dramatic rescues and escapes, but less attention is paid to what happens to trafficked persons after they leave the trafficking situation. Trafficked persons have a complex set of needs that can include physical safety, psychological and medical aid, family mediation, legal support for participation in criminal proceedings against the traffickers and for claiming compensation, and long-term economic opportunities. While in recent years ASEAN has taken a lot of steps to ensure that trafficked persons receive adequate assistance and protection, a lot still needs to be done. 

This event will explore the protection and social reintegration processes available for trafficked persons in Thailand and ASEAN and identify good practices and existing gaps. It will also serve to present the new issue of the “Anti-Trafficking Review” also entitled ‘Life after Trafficking’, which explores these issues in a broader context from different countries around the globe. 

The panel composition is as follows:


Dr. Rosalia Sciortino
Director SEA Junction & Associate Professor, Institute for Population and Social Research 


H.E. Dr. Seree Nonthasoot
Representative of Thailand to AICHR; ASEAN Intergovernmental Commission on Human Rights

H.E. Dr. Ratchada Jayagupta
Representative of Thailand to the ACWC for Women’s Rights (ASEAN Commission on the Promotion and Protection of the Rights of Women and Children) and researcher at the Asian Research Center for Migration (ARCM) at the Institute of Asian Studies, Chulalongkorn University

Borislav Gerasimov
Editor of the “Anti-Trafficking Review”

Global Alliance Against Traffic in Women (GAATW)
