Headquartered in Bangkok, the United Nations Inter-Agency Project on Human Trafficking in the Greater Mekong Sub-region (UNIAP) was established in June 2000 in order to formulate a more coordinated response to human trafficking in this region of Southeast Asia. UNIAP has over 30 staff members and they work closely with a number of donor organizations that work in the region and in other areas, including South Asia and Europe. Policy wonks, scholars, and activists will find plenty of information here on the site, including a "Project Search" feature which allows them to refine their search in a geographic fashion. Those persons who might be wholly unacquainted with this phenomenon may wish to click on "About Human Trafficking" to read through a brief overview and also check out some basic statistics about trafficking in the region. Further along, visitors should definitely look through the "Publications and Resources" area. Here they can read full text versions of international conventions and protocols regarding human trafficking and training manuals for combating trafficking.
