Abstract

The return and reintegration process is a commonly under-represented consideration across policy and literature concerning trafficking in persons. It is often distinct or absent from the core anti-trafficking themes of prevention, protection, and prosecution. This article explores the nature and quality of the programs and processes under which victims of trafficking in persons are returned and reintegrated from Australia. It examines victim demographics, including the countries to which victims most commonly return, as well as key principles that govern successful return and reintegration. Further, the article analyses the mechanisms that manage how victims in Australia are currently prepared for their return home and explores interactions with foreign reintegration and rehabilitation assistance schemes available to victims upon their return. To this end, an analysis of the Australian situation against international best practice principles informs responsive policy change and law reform recommendations.
