Mapping corruption risks in the criminal justice response to human trafficking in Southeast Asia (25-26 April)
This workshop, hosted by DFAT, brings together staff of the Australia-Asia Program to Combat Trafficking in Persons (AAPTIP) program and the United Nations Action for Cooperation Against Trafficking in Persons (UN-ACT). The objectives of the workshop are to 1) map corruption risks in the criminal justice response to trafficking in persons with a particular view to the AAPTIP outcome areas for investigation, prosecution and adjudication and 2) to identify entry points for action during the remaining period of the AAPTIP.
Strengthening integrity in the Thai justice sector (27 April)
This one-day workshop, also hosted by DFAT, will be held back-to-back with the above workshop, but will be tailored to a group of participants from the Thai authorities, such as the National Anti-Corruption Commission, the Attorney General’s Office (Specialist TIP Prosecutors Unit), Judges, Royal Thai Police. UNODC, the American Bar Association and U4 partners will also participate with the objective to (1) raise awareness of corruption risks and practical anti-corruption tools in the criminal justice chain in Thailand and to (2) identify high priority reform areas for consideration by participant agencies.
