In early 2018, Rapid Asia conducted a study on compensations for trafficking victims in Thailand and Cambodia. The project was commissioned by Liberty Asia, a Hong Kong based international NGO. The final report was launched in November 2018 and titled: “Turning Possibilities into Realities: Compensating Victims of Trafficking under Anti-Trafficking Legal Frameworks in Thailand and Cambodia”
The report reviews the current victim compensation systems in Thailand and Cambodia in cases of sex and labour trafficking. The report highlight the extent to which rights of victims of trafficking to access compensation are protected by law and the limitations in these rights being realised in practice. The report further identifies ways in which the gaps and limitations in the existing system could be addressed to form the basis of advocacy efforts for improved access to remedies for victims of trafficking in both countries.
