Since July 2007, the Australian Institute of Criminology has been conducting research into the trafficking of persons in the Asia–Pacific region in order to contribute to the evidence base underpinning efforts to combat people trafficking across a range of industries. This report examines what is known about labour trafficking, based on incidences of reported crimes, but also by drawing on information about unreported crime. As such, it provides an assessment about the known or likely incidence of trafficking in persons.
