Chapter Summary

This is the concluding chapter of the book ASEAN and Human Trafficking, which recognizes ASEAN's efforts to tackle the scourge trafficking in persons in its region and acknowledges all challenges that ASEAN has faced through its regional agreements and mechanisms. ASEAN's achievements and struggles in the battle against trafficking in persons suggest that ASEAN should strengthen its counter-human trafficking strategies by enacting the ASEAN Declaration on the Promotion and Protection of the Rights of Trafficking Victims (ADTV), which will contain adequate mechanisms for preventing human trafficking, protecting victims, and prosecuting of offenders. The creation of the ASEAN Commission on the Promotion and Protection of the Rights of Trafficking Victims (ACTV) is also supported as a special mechanism to battle trafficking of all men, women and children in the region. At its formation ASEAN persuaded its member countries to concentrate on an economic approach to community building.

Keywords: ADTV; ASEAN's struggles; ASEAN's achievements; battle trafficking; community building; counter-human trafficking strategies; prosecuting of offenders; protecting victims; regional agreements
