The Role of Media-Based Interventions in Combating Human Trafficking in Southeast Asia
In recent years, government and non-government organisations have started to see the value of indigenous language media. These media have been developed in a variety of genres, with documentaries and soap operas produced to target key development issues such as public health, education, environmental preservation and, more recently, combating human trafficking. Although these strategies have been used in Africa and the subcontinent to varying degrees of success, it is their use in the Southeast Asian context that is the focus of this research. Within this context, these media-based interventions are being used primarily to address a variety of current issues including drug and substance abuse, destructive cultural practices and migration issues, including human trafficking.
