LIBERTY ASIA

Liberty Asia

Liberty Asia is a project under Share (Asia Pacific) Limited, a Hong Kong-registered charity, that aims to prevent human trafficking through legal advocacy, technological interventions, and strategic collaborations with NGOs, corporations, and financial institutions.

In Asia, there are hundreds of organisations fighting slavery and human trafficking. Despite this large number, there is a lack of collaborative resources available for organisations working in the field of anti-trafficking and anti-slavery. Many organisations work alone, with little support. 

To address this limitation and to provide a more effective, collective, and systemic response to slavery, Liberty Asia is:

  • facilitating the sharing of information, expertise, data, and best practices with strategic partners through online platforms;
  • gathering and sharing intelligence on slavery activities with the corporate community;
  • championing legal reform and improving the understanding of victim identification, protection, and procedures;
  • building a stable communications backbone for Asia hotlines to scale up their capacity to support more victims and returnees;
  • developing slavery education and awareness programmes to enact change in all sectors of society;
  • and joining a global initiative to fight slavery.

Strategic Thematic Direction

During 2011-13, through our Power in Migration and Work thematic programme, we engaged more directly with the migrant rights and labour rights movements. During 2014-2016 our work will build on the work of previous years; we will continue to push for a human rights based approach in anti-trafficking policies and practices.  We will also deepen our engagement with the issue of migration and labour.

The three thematic strategic issues outlined below are continuations of our work during 2011-13.

ACCOUNTABILITY Increasing the accountability of all anti-trafficking stakeholders involved in the design or implementation of anti-trafficking responses, towards the persons whose human rights they purport to protect.

ACCESS TO JUSTICE Broadening spaces for trafficked persons and migrant workers to practice their human rights by improving access to justice and combating all forms of discrimination that impact women’s ability to exercise their human rights as they relate to trafficking.

POWER IN MIGRATION AND WORK Centring an analysis of women’s power in their labour and migration to better assess migration and labour policies’ impact on women, and to work towards labour and migration processes that reflect migrants’ needs, aspirations and capabilities.
