This special collaboration with Chatham House Asia-Pacific Programme in London and local partners in Taiwan is hopefully one of many similar events in the future, as we seek to convene forums to bring together different expertise in anti-trafficking in the region. Our aim is for anti-trafficking to be grounded in accurate scholarship and best practices on the ground, all towards the goal of leading to concrete changes in the employment conditions of migrant workers.
