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 works primarily on strengthening the justice sector response to human trafficking, while developing new partnerships with allied government agencies, civil society and business. It engages all 10 ASEAN Member States in some capacity and progresses national-level programming in Cambodia, Indonesia, Lao PDR, Myanmar, the Philippines, Thailand, and Vietnam.
The overarching goal that ASEAN-ACT contributes to is that ASEAN member states have effective justice systems that provide just punishment of traffickers and protect the rights of victims. Three interrelated end-of-program outcomes (EOPOs) 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.
The ASEAN Commission on the Promotion and Protection of the Rights of Women and Children (ACWC), in partnership with ASEAN-ACT, is implementing a multi-year project titled: “Capacity Enhancement of Frontline Responders in Countering Trafficking Using Victim-Centred and Gender-Sensitive approaches.” The project contributes to the implementation of ASEAN-ACT’s Equality and Inclusion (EI) and Victim Rights (VR) Strategies and is aligned with the program’s EOPOs, in particular EOPO1.
As a part of the project, ASEAN-ACT is engaging a consultant to support the design and development of training materials on victim-centred and gender-sensitive approaches for frontline responders involved in countering trafficking in persons.
The objective of this consultancy is to develop training materials that promote the mainstreaming of victim-centred and gender-sensitive approaches into the day-to-day work of frontline trafficking responders in Southeast Asia. Frontline responders refer to law enforcers, social workers, civil society organisations and other actors that have direct contact with victims of trafficking.
The consultant will be responsible for developing two sets of training materials on victim-centred and gender sensitive approaches for frontline responders (one online training for basic level, and one in-person training for advanced level). Both products should be customised for the ASEAN region. Training materials published by ACWC and/or endorsed by the ASEAN Senior Officials Meeting on Transnational Crime (SOMTC) may also be used as resources or references for further training materials. The training materials shall be made available in English and relevant national languages of ASEAN Members States.
