gathering was also addressed by Manavendra Mandal, coordinator of ATSEC, Rajeeb Sharma of GOLD, Digambar Narzery of Nedan and N. Thakuria from Guwahati Press Club.The highpoint of the dialogue was the participation by Ela Sangma , empowered survivor of human trafficking . She is currently working with Impulse Network and is involved in the rescue of the victims of human trafficking. She spoke about the need for creating awareness at the district level and stressed upon the need to hold similar dialogues with the community leaders. She further appealed to the media to be sensitive while profiling victims of human trafficking.Ms. Pinky Pradhan, Communication and Advocacy Officer, UNODC Regional Office for South Asia, shared about the mandate of UNODC . She informed that UNODC seeks to achieve security and justice for all by helping member states and their people to guard against threats posed by drugs, crime and terrorism. In South Asia, UNODC's main current
focus areas are drug abuse awareness, reducing injecting drug use (IDU) driven HIV/AIDS, combating human trafficking, precursor chemical control, prison reform, smuggling of migrants and anti-corruption.During the workshop, the protection of rights of rehabilitated survivors and provision of special services was strongly recommended. Many times survivors are discriminated against and isolated due to societal stigma. The need for collaboration between law enforcement and CSO's (Civil Society Organization) was equally stressed upon.There was also demand for implementation of laws and programmes that respect women's rights. It was also unanimously agreed that there is a need for integrating counter trafficking measures within the larger livelihood framework and collaboration between civil society, corporates and Government to ensure effective implementation of laws
and policies."UNODC's anti human trafficking initiatives focuses on the three aspects of prevention, prosecution and protection. Most of law enforcement programmes relate to setting up anti-human-trafficking units in the police, training police and prosecutors, developing standard operating procedures for better law enforcement and improving law enforcement networks with the anti-trafficking NGO communities.Other areas of work include prevention programmes and supporting facilities for the victims and survivors of human trafficking," said Ms. Marie Erickson, Consultant UNODC, during the proceedings of the dialogue.
