 Regional Alliance to Combat Trafficking in Persons

The Jordanian Women's Union Association began working on studying the phenomenon of human trafficking, especially women, after it began receiving victims in the legal, psychological and social guidance line program and the women's shelter in the union. In response to the needs of the victims, the Federation began working on planning at the local and regional levels to protect them and provide them with all legal, psychological and health services. The Federation began working on forming a regional alliance to combat this crime in four countries (Jordan, Egypt, Morocco and Lebanon) in 2010, and these countries were selected Based on the nationalities that were received or that were dealt with at the time in the psychological, legal and social guidance line program.

Activities of the Regional Coalition to Combat Trafficking in Human Beings:

Implementation of the first regional conference, through which the concept of human trafficking was unified among partners, and included early marriage and violations of domestic labor to be within the general definition of human trafficking when crime elements and indicators were available.
A regional legal committee was formed, which in turn worked to write a draft model law based on international references, taking into account the specifics of each of the target countries.
The partner institutions in the regional alliance have worked to promote this model law to all concerned parties, parliaments and decision-makers, and this draft was also proposed in the Moroccan Parliament for the adoption of the law afterwards.
The legal committee worked on writing special instructions for shelters for victims of human trafficking aimed at improving protection procedures for victims and procedures for reintegration for survivors and protecting their material and human rights during and after sheltering.
During this stage, shelters were opened in both Egypt and Morocco to receive crime survivors, reintegrate them into society and protect them from being trafficked again.
A large number of awareness lectures were implemented in both Egypt and Morocco for girls and women in areas most vulnerable to the exploitation of traffickers.
At a later stage of the project, the union and the nucleus of the regional alliance increased the members of the alliance to include the representation of the following countries (Bahrain, Palestine, Syria, Yemen, Sudan, Iraq, Libya).
It was agreed to complete the work through the body of the regional alliance, and in order to organize the work at the regional level, a regional meeting of strategic planning was carried out at the local and regional levels, through which a strategic plan for the regional alliance came out for the coming period. The partner institutions also worked on formulating local plans in light of the last strategic planning meeting
Work has been done with member institutions of the regional alliance to develop a regional alliance mechanism to protect victims and reintegrate them into their societies and protect them from re-trafficking after reviewing local plans in each country.
Work has been done to build the capacities of partner institutions in the coalition on the concept of trafficking, protection mechanisms and victim identification, national and regional referral mechanisms, and the development of means to activate national referrals and partnership with the various agencies that provide protection services to victims.
A regional conference was held during which working papers were presented by members of the regional alliance from Egypt, Jordan, Palestine, Iraq, Bahrain, Morocco, Yemen, Lebanon, Libya, Syria and Sudan, focusing on the reality of trafficking in Arab countries and the impact of the Corona epidemic on the access of victims of trafficking to justice and protection services.
The regional alliance continues to operate according to the previously prepared strategic plan locally and regionally.
