Summary
This study presents the up-to-date information of regional and national return and reintegration mechanism for victims of trafficking in Cambodia, China, Lao People’s Democratic Republic, Myanmar, Thailand and Vietnam by systematically reviewing how victims of trafficking identified in the GMS are assisted in the destination country, returned to their original country and supported in reintegrating into their society. This study focuses on immediate protection services and on repatriation because they are the aspects of return that the IOM project is most concerned with. While victim identification and reintegration are not the main focus of the study, information on those aspects of the process provided in the country questionnaires and in available documents is presented in the report. The report focuses on return processes within the GMS. Although some persons from the region are trafficked to countries outside the GMS and some are trafficked from other countries into the region, these patterns are outside of the scope of this review.
