Who should attend:

We believe learning happens through peer interaction. This conference is designed to incorporate all sectors involved in anti-human trafficking, such as; private sector, non-government organizations, academia, and government. In an effort to support those who want to attend and are new to anti-human trafficking we will be offering an opening session before the conference starts on Monday, July 20th. This session will include a brief overview of the history of the anti-trafficking movement as well as an overview of the language used in discussing trafficking.

The Asia Region Anti-Trafficking Conference was held in Bangkok, Thailand first on Nov. 13-16 2017, then again on Feb. 25-28 2019. ARAT is a collaborative conference founded in partnership between Chab Dai Coalition in Cambodia and STOP THE TRAFFIK Australia.

I want to say a huge thank you and congratulations to your team for putting together SUCH an excellent program. For a first-time conference, you hit it way, way out of the park!! You made me want to be part of the team! Thank you for the gift of renewed energy, resources, and learning!
I liked how it was a collaboration between two organizations, a good example. I like that many women were presenters, so it wasn’t all just men like me. [...] I appreciate the kindness and humility that all the ARAT organizers showed. Really a great job!
