UNICRI/CICP Project Coalition Against Human Trafficking in the Philippines

The survey research was carried out within the framework of the demonstration project entitled “Coalition Against Trafficking in Human Beings in the Philippines-Phase I’” of the Global Programme Against Trafficking in Human Beings that the Centre for International Crime Prevention (CICP) of the United Nations Office for Drug Control and Crime Prevention (UNODCCP) in cooperation with the United Nations Interregional Crime and Justice Research Institute (UNICRI) initiated in spring 1999. The design of the research instruments was a collaborative venture between UNICRI, the Australian Institute of Criminology (AIC) and the Institute for Strategic and Development Studies (ISDS).

The study strives to provide a more systematic examination of the involvement of organized crime groups in the experiences of victims of trafficking/smuggling as well as the initiatives of non-governmental organizations (NGOs) in the Philippines in providing assistance to these victims.
