 1. Background

Victims of human trafficking, including both trafficked victims of prostitution or labour purposes, are vulnerable people who do need the support of government and society. During the time, Vietnam has taken many actions to support trafficked victims; however, many victims, especially trafficked victims of labour purposes have not been able to access these support services yet. They went abroad to work through state and private labour export companies, and some of them after that had to suffer from the forced labour situation. They had to work in bad working conditions, did things that were not described in the working contract and were forced to stop working without any compensation. As in a research announced on March 16 2011 by the Institute of Labour and Social Sciences (Ministry of Labour, Invalids and Society), up to 54% of labourers working in abroad did not have a liquidated contract before they returned to their home country (Vietnam), while in order that they could go for work abroad, 100% of them had to borrow money with high interest rate from state banks or other resources[1]. As a result, when returning to Vietnam, trafficked victims of labour purposes had to exhaust to earn money.

The main point here is only a few victims are identified as victims of human trafficking as stipulated by Vietnam law. Hence, they can not receive fully legal aid support to start necessary proceedings against labourer recruitment companies in cases they may be victims of human trafficking[2]. Only 13.5% of labourers can receive the support from their locality and 16.3% get the support of labour export businesses.

From this reality, it is clearly showed that victims of human trafficking for labour purposes need to be discovered and supported in time. Discovering and identifying victims is the best way to give support to them and also give influence over the government in order to uphold the official roles of authorities at all levels in supporting victims of human trafficking. This discovery needs to be taken based on a scientific research with strategic and highly persuasive results.

With the cooperation and support of the United Nations Inter-Agency Project on Human Trafficking (UNIAP), CSAGA carries out the project: “Improving the Access to Support Services for Victims of Labour Trafficking”. The first activity of this project is to understand the need of trafficked victims of labour purposes.
