About Stoptrafiking

Stoptrafiking.or.id is a website dedicated to all information and news related to human trafficking and safe migration.

Stoptraficking was first launched by OnTrackMedia Indonesia in 2006, with the support of USAID and the European Union. At the time, Stoptrafiking was one of the main sources of information on trafficking in Indonesia. However, due to technical difficulties, the website went on hiatus for several years.

Stoptrafiking is now back and better than ever, thanks to the support from the International Federation of Red Cross and Red Crescent Societies (IFRC) and the European Union, for the Project "Safe Migration Campaign and Strengthening the Capacity of the Task Force and Training Centers in East Nusa Tenggara", which is currently underway from September 2015 to February 2016.

This website hopes to provide valuable information for prospective migrant workers, migrant workers, and ex- workers and their families, so that they know how to migrate safely and understand their rights.

Contact us if you have any inquiries about this website, or about the issues of human trafficking or safe migration.

Who We Are

OnTrackMedia Indonesia (OTMI) is a local non-government organisation (NGO) that specialises in public awareness campaigns and media consultancy. With a Head Office in Jakarta and a branch in Kupang, East Nusa Tenggara, we carry out carefully crafted campaigns that focus on raising awareness and influencing behaviours and attitudes to prmote well being. OTMI uses entertainment, such as sinetron, radio dramas, and games, as well as documentaries, training videos, and media and journalism workshops.

OTMI's work in the issue of human trafficking began in 2005, when OTMI designed the anti-trafficking curriculum and training materials known as "Silent Suffering" or "Derita Bisu", along with ACILS and ICMC. "Derita Bisu" was distributed through the Scout movement in NTT, and is still used today to give educative training on the issue of human trafficking.

OTMI has also produced two other training materials that consist of a semi-documentary and board game called "Traveller's Dream: Working in Arab Countries" and "Traveller's Dream: Working in Malaysia". The training materials have been used in the curriculums of Overseas Worker Training Centers (BLKLN) in Jakarta, and in educative events held with the National Agency for the Placement and Protection of Indonesian Migrant Workers (BNP2TKI) in various sending areas in 2013.

What is Human Trafficking?

Human trafficking is a serious crime that deprives its victims of their human rights. Women, men, and even children can become victims of human trafficking.

Law No. 21, 2007 on the Eradication of the Criminal Act of Trafficking in Persons, defines Trafficking in Persons as the recruitment, transportation, harboring, sending, transfer, or receipt of a person by means of threat or use of force, abduction, incarceration, fraud, deception, the abuse of power or a position of vulnerability, debt bondage or the giving or receiving of payments or benefits to achieve the consent of a person having control over another person, whether commited within the country or cross-border, for the purpose of exploitation or which causes the exploitation of a person.

There are 3 important elements in trafficking:

  1. ACT
  2. MEANS

If all three elements are present within a situation, it can be called a case of human trafficking.
