    Abstract

    The dimensions of human trafficking within the Asia and Pacific region are numerous and complex. In the Philippines, organized crime groups are involved in various ways, leading to a fragmented response. Drawing on reports from various organizations, it is possible to map what is known, and what needs to be known, in order to formulate a holistic strategy to combat trafficking. So far, research has concentrated on estimating the scale of the problem, identifying trafficking routes, documenting methods of recruitment, and assessing existing policy frameworks. To make further progress, it will be necessary to coordinate efforts of various NGOs, establish common definitions across national boundaries, and work out data‐sharing agreements between organizations.
