ASEAN-ACT Talk Series 07 | Compensation for Victims of Human Trafficking: Good Practices and Challenges
In the lead up to World Day against Trafficking in Persons (30 July), we spotlight the protection of trafficked victims and their right to access compensation.

Victims of human trafficking experience multi-faceted forms of trauma and abuse. In most jurisdictions in ASEAN Member States, victims of trafficking have a right to access compensation as part of seeking justice and restitution. However, victims of trafficking in our region are often not aware of their right to compensation and how to access it.

So what is compensation and how is it administered? How is it different from restitution? On what basis is compensation filed? Are the procedures accessible and manageable for the victims? Will acquittal from a criminal action bar a civil action? What is the role of the law enforcers, prosecutors, judges, and private lawyers? Where are funds for victim compensation sourced?

This webinar series will provide participants with the opportunity to hear from a panel of experts who will discuss the key concepts underpinning victim compensation, as well as good practices and recommendations.
