Testing the Guiding Principles on Combatting Corruption related to Trafficking in Persons in the Philippines

This chapter takes stock of the potential practical application of the “Guiding Principles on Combatting Corruption related to Trafficking in Persons” in the context of the Philippines, and explores whether the Guiding Principles effectively address the concerns identified in relation to trafficking in persons and corruption.

With the goal of ensuring that the “Guiding Principles on Combatting Corruption related to Trafficking in Persons” (hereafter, the Guiding Principles) are both relevant and useful in addressing the real-life, practical challenges identified on the ground in relation to trafficking in persons (TIP) and corruption, the Guiding Principles were tested in the Philippines. The first part of the chapter will introduce the legal and institutional framework in place and the general situation in relation to TIP and corruption in the Philippines. The second part of the chapter will highlight how the issues raised in the respective principles have been applied in the context of the Philippines - and/or, if relevant, discuss any challenges or lessons learned in addressing the issues raised in the principles in question. The final part of the chapter will present the feedback on the Guiding Principles provided by stakeholders that were consulted during an OECD factfinding mission to Manila in August 2015, and the findings from the in-country testing.
