Authors/editor(s): Abigail Hunt, Maria Quattri, Briana Mawby, Georgia Plank and Shan-non Phillip, with Sokchar Mom, Khin Zar Naing, and Sanda Thant

Trafficking is prevalent across the Greater Mekong subregion, yet the specific gendered experiences of those affected remain underexplored. Relatively little is known about the extent to which initiatives aimed at prevention, return and response and reintegration are gender-responsive.

This report aims to fill these gaps. It brings together a wide-ranging literature and policy review and primary qualitative data to provide insights into how gender and trafficking intersect across Cambodia, Myanmar and Thailand. It identifies a range of gaps and challenges and identifies priorities for future policy and programming.
