The Blas F. Ople Policy Center and Training institute, Inc. is implementing the PROACT Project aimed at mobilizing support from among Civil Society Organizations (CSOs) and Overseas Filipino Workers (OFWs) themselves on key policy reforms that would sustain and enhance good practices in facilitating access to justice and reintegration services for trafficked OFWs. The project is funded by the Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade (DFAT) through the Australian Counter Trafficking (ASEAN ACT) Program.
The Research will compile and analyze proposed measures that would prevent trafficking of OFWs, protect victims, provide them access to justice and services, and ensure effective reintegration. The proposed measures can be in the form of amendments to the Anti-Trafficking in Persons Act or provisions from other Bills. The Research output will help stakeholders come up with informed, evidence-based policy proposals.
