Abstract

This research was part of a larger project on trafficking in human beings from the Philippines, Coalitions Against Trafficking in the Philippines - Phase 1, carried out under the auspices of the United Nations Interregional Crime and Justice Research Institute (UNICRI) and the United Nations Centre for International Crime Prevention (CICP). The focus of the research was to determine certain aspects of trafficking in persons between the Philippines and Australia to include modes of recruitment, transportation, use of fraudulent documents, deception and exploitation, routes, corruption and collusion and the involvement of organised criminal groups.
