The Bali Process on People Smuggling, People Trafficking and Related Transnational Crime commenced in 2002. With 45 member States, along with UNODC, IOM and UNHCR, the Bali Process operates as a forum for policy dialogue, information sharing and practical cooperation to raise regional awareness and address the challenges of people smuggling, trafficking in persons and related transnational crime. 

The Regional Support Office of the Bali Process (RSO) was established in Bangkok in 2012 with the aim of facilitating practical activities and regional cooperation by Bali Process States to reduce irregular migration in the Asia-Pacific region. The RSO is jointly managed by Indonesia and Australia, and seeks to achieve its aim through capacity building, training, exchange of best practice, sharing technical resources and supporting joint projects in areas such as information campaigns for people vulnerable to irregular movement, border management and protection of refugees and victims of human trafficking. 
The RSO works closely and collaboratively with States and international organizations on a range of projects to benefit Bali Process members. The success of its projects rests on drawing on and incorporating the perspectives of a range of States and organizations, and in always working towards outcomes that are broadly beneficial to all Bali Process States, not just to any single State. The Forward Work Plan 2015 – 2017 for the RSO can be found at the attached link.    
Trafficking in persons projects of the RSO include: 
•    A Quick Reference Guide to assist police officers interviewing victims of trafficking. The
Guide is being developed by a seconded Brigadier-General from the Department of AntiHuman Trafficking and Juvenile Protection of the Cambodian National Police. Once developed the Guide will be made available to all Bali Process States, and can be translated on request. 
•    An ongoing partnership between the RSO and CIFAL Jeju International Training Centre in South Korea, to deliver training on Enhancing a Victim-Centered Approach to the Identification, Assistance and Protection of Victims of Trafficking in the Asia-Pacific region. Training takes place twice a year at CIFAL Jeju, and training nominations can be received by the RSO.  
People smuggling projects include:
•    An Immigration Liaison Officer (ILO) Curriculum and Training Programme. This training programme is intended to provide border officials from any Bali Process State with the capability to deploy to international airports of other States, and identify and prevent persons travelling on fraudulent passports, fraudulent visas or as impostors. 
•    A Quick Reference Guide to provide frontline border officials with simple tips to assess travelers and their travel documents, and to identify travelers who are not genuine and may be travelling on fraudulent documents. The Guide is available in English and can be translated into other languages on request. 
•    A handbook to Address Irregular Migration through Effective Information Campaigns. The handbook shares effective examples and regional experiences of government led information campaigns to combat smuggling and trafficking. 
Law enforcement training projects include:
•    The RSO worked in partnership with the Jakarta Centre for Law Enforcement Cooperation (JCLEC) to bring together the heads of law enforcement and immigration training institutions of 18 Bali Process States. This meeting of National Training Directors discussed the importance of contemporary training in responding to emerging irregular migration trends, and the important role multilateral training institutions play in providing a platform to develop regional partnerships and greater information sharing. Following the meeting’s success, a further meeting of National Training Directors will be planned for 2017. 
The RSO offers an opportunity to engage the diversity of experiences and perspectives that it’s member States and organizations offer. 
Bali Process States and their police organizations are welcome to:
•    Second staff to the RSO to work on projects;
•    Engage with the RSO and help shape current and planned projects; 
•    Propose or fund projects to be undertaken through the office.
