Local actors are important both for trafficking in persons (TIP) prevention and protection of survivors as they have deep connections with local communities and a better understanding of vulnerabilities to TIP and labor exploitation. In the past several years, Thailand has made significant progress with laws and policies at the national level, to punish perpetrators, protect survivors, and prevent human trafficking. Additionally, the provincial Anti-trafficking in Persons (ATIP) Committee, under the leadership of the Provincial Social Development and Human Security office (PSDHS), plays a crucial role in implementing national policy and laws. However, gaps remain in implementation and enforcement at thedistrict, sub-district, and village levels. Strengthening the capacity of frontline practitioners to identify and refer TIP survivors helps to strengthen protection efforts at the local level, ensuring that more victims are identified and referred to protection and (re)integration services.
