Since 2019, JPIT (Jaringan Perempuan Indonesia Timur-Womens Network of East Indonesia) has documented the stories of victim’s of human trafficking in Central South Timor (TTS) and Kupang District. Both of these areas were districts with the highest migrant worker’s death rate in all of NTT. A few of the victims admitted that this was the first time they had told their stories, and exposed the abuse they faced while working outside of NTT through this documentation process. From this documentation JPIT found that the the main mode of human trafficking was Work Migration (PMI). While this mode was not always associated with acts of trafficking, the loopholes in the regulations and a lack of protections left many workers from the NTT region susceptible to violence and human trafficking.
