Launch of KWAT report on conflict and human trafficking
The Kachin Women’s Association Thailand (KWAT) will launch a new report Pushed to the Brink, about how conflict and displacement is fuelling human trafficking in northern Burma at the Foreign Correspondent’s Club of Thailand (FCCT) in Bangkok, Thailand.
KWAT has been documenting the problem of trafficking from Kachin areas for ten years, and has produced several reports on this issue, exposing how numerous women and girls have been trafficked across China, mainly to be forced brides. Their new report looks at how the displacement of over 100,000 people since the renewal of conflict in Kachin State two years ago has impacted this long-standing trafficking problem and responses by local and international anti-trafficking agencies.
