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 will principally work on strengthening the justice sector response to human trafficking, while opening up new partnerships with allied government agencies, civil society and business. It will engage all 10 ASEAN Member States in some capacity and will continue national-level programming in Cambodia, Indonesia, Lao PDR, Myanmar, the Philippines, Thailand and Vietnam.

Program Outcomes

The overarching goal that ASEAN-ACT will contribute to is that ASEAN member states have effective justice systems that provide just punishment of traffickers and protect the rights of victims. Three end-of-program outcomes (EOPOs) together 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.

ASEAN-ACT is engaging a consultant to support the design and delivery of a partner mapping diagnostic. The diagnostic is intended to capture strategic and influential organisations and individuals at regional and national level in 7 ASEAN Member States. This diagnostic will support the implementation of ASEAN-ACT's Equality and Inclusion (GESI) Strategy and Victim Rights (VR) Strategy and the achievement of EOPO 2 and 3.


The objective of this consultancy is to support the achievement of inclusive public policy processes to improve ACTIP implementation, with the specific objective of conducting foundational work to maximise the engagement of stakeholders from outside the justice sector with the justice officials responsible for trafficking in persons policy and reform processes to reinforce better implementation of victim rights and advance key equality and inclusion issues in trafficking in persons at national and regional levels.
