Description:

Through this funding opportunity, PAS Mumbai seeks to provide a series of workshops in states across western India (states of Maharashtra, Madya Pradesh, Goa, Gujarat, and Chhattisgarh) that will act as platforms for law enforcement and local governments to discuss best practices on fighting TIP and to learn from subject matter experts. These experts (who could be from fields such as academia, civil society, or law enforcement) will share their perspectives on current legislation addressing TIP crimes, ideas on how to implement these laws, and best practices for community engagement to promote reporting of TIP crimes. At each workshop, the grantee will convene 20 to 25 stakeholders in anti-TIP discussions, including government officials, police, and judges. The workshops will encourage law enforcement and local governments to brainstorm strategies to engage with high-risk communities on awareness of anti-TIP laws and reporting mechanisms to law enforcement.

Project Objectives:

  • By raising awareness of TIP issues and spurring stakeholders to take action, the project aims for a 25 percent increase in local TIP investigations and prosecutions.
  • Local governments and law enforcement create strategic plans to address TIP in their communities through public messaging and effective law enforcement strategies. Stakeholders implement these strategies over the course of the project.
