Trafficking in Persons: Singapore's Evolving Responses
AbstractFor a long time, sending countries have been the focus of efforts to combat trafficking in persons (TIP). However, in recent years, destination countries such as Singapore have also stepped up their efforts. This is timely because improved recognition and management of the threat and challenges of TIP will do much to prevent the abuse and commercial exploitation of adults and children. This NTS Alert discusses the TIP phenomenon, focusing on Singapore and the significant new developments in Singaporeâ€™s policies on the issue. In particular, it highlights the establishment of Singaporeâ€™s Inter-Agency Taskforce on TIP and the development of its National Plan of Action. [NTS Alerts].
