By identifying and partnering with a broad range of regional and national stakeholders, ASEAN-ACT is capturing a wider range of opportunities to strengthen justice responses and advance the rights of victims.
The program’s inclusive stakeholder engagement strategy, which extends beyond the justice sector, will support ASEAN and its Member States to make lasting systemic changes in their criminal justice and victim support processes.
ASEAN-ACT undertook stakeholder mapping from June to October 2020 to identify potential government and non-government partners for the program’s victim rights and equality and inclusion work, both at the national and regional level.
As part of the stakeholder mapping, we compiled a stakeholder directory, featured on our portal, that lists the key players involved in counter–trafficking in persons in Southeast Asia, including in the seven countries where ASEAN-ACT has national programming. The directory also identifies organisations in each country that are actively involved in supporting marginalised and socially excluded groups.
The stakeholders presented in this summary paper are not intended to constitute an exhaustive list, especially in the diverse civil society space.
