About the program

ASEAN–Australia Counter Trafficking (ASEAN-ACT) continues Australia’s long running collaboration with ASEAN and its member states to end human trafficking in our region. The program will principally work on strengthening the justice sector response to human trafficking, while opening new partnerships with allied government agencies, civil society and business. It will engage all 10 ASEAN Member States in some capacity and will continue national-level programming in Cambodia, Indonesia, Lao PDR, Myanmar, the Philippines, Thailand and Vietnam.

Program Outcomes

The overarching goal that ASEAN-ACT will contribute to is that ASEAN member states have effective justice systems that provide just punishment of traffickers and protect the rights of victims. Three end-of-program outcomes (EOPOs) together contribute to the achievement of this goal by 2028:

  • EOPO1: ASEAN’s planning, monitoring and reporting of ACTIP implementation is increasingly effective and advances the protection of victim rights.
  • EOPO2: ASEAN member state justice and related state agencies are increasingly capable of implementing their ACTIP obligations, in particular those that uphold victim rights.
  • EOPO3: ASEAN member state justice and related state agencies’ policies and practices are influenced by relevant stakeholders and better aligned with ACTIP, especially in connection to victim rights obligations.

Overview

Previous Australian Government support to Vietnam has included the development of the Reactive Investigation Training Curriculum which was endorsed by the People’s Police Academy and embedded in the People’s Police Academy’s Training Courses on Counter-TIP for Criminal Police since 2017.

During ASEAN-ACT’s facilitated capacity assessment workshop in 2019 law enforcement agencies identified the need to strengthen the ability to deliver their counter trafficking mandates as a priority area for support. Feedback received as that front-line law enforcements officers require increased technical knowledge in counter human trafficking, particularly in victim identification to achieve the outputs in
Vietnam’s National Plan of Action.

From 2018 to 2020, the Ministry of Public Security undertook a reform activity and assigned a major number of police officers to work in communes. To assist Vietnamese justice and related state agencies implement their ACTIP obligations, particularly upholding victims’ rights, ASEAN-ACT is extending the previous Australian Government support to strengthen the existing Vietnamese law enforcement training and professional development systems.

To deliver this support in a sustainable manner ASEAN-ACT will work with the People’s Police Academy (PPA), Criminal Police Department (CDP) and Police College (PC) to build a core group of trainers to deliver capacity building programs on Counter Trafficking in Persons (CTIP) for law enforcement officers. These trainers will be from the PPA, CPD, PC and selected provincial law enforcement officers/investigators. Materials, guides and trainers will all form part of the existing government systems

Objective

This input forms part of ASEAN-ACTs initiatives to improve Vietnam’s ability to meet the goals in its National Plan of Action and obligations to the ASEAN Convention Against Trafficking in Persons, Especially Women and Children.
