Abstract

The juxtaposition of domestic and regional responses to child trafficking and migration is clearly delineated in the context of South-East Asia due to the proximity of countries and relative ease of access across the region. This ease of access has led to well-established migration flows, or routes, leaving the region split between source countries and destination countries. it is well documented that migration occurs intra-regionally from less developed countries to more developed countries, and that a substantial number of children are making this move.1 Based on this, this chapter examines how the best interests principle embodies in the Convention on the Rights of the Child intersects with the issue of child migration and trafficking in the Association of South East Asian nations (ASEAN) region. Through this contrasting examination in domestic and regional contexts, the chapter draws a conclusion regarding how the law may navigate the best interests of the child paradigm in relation to child migration and trafficking in South East Asia.
