Khulisa Management Services is pleased to announce during National Anti-Trafficking Week in South Africa that, in partnership with the University of Witwatersrand, we have been awarded the research to conduct Research on the Nature and Scope of Trafficking In Persons (TIP) in South Africa, funded by USAID and the Department of Science and Innovation (DSI) in South Africa. Khulisa is working collaboratively with TIP Research experts including; Dr Ajwang’ Warria from Wits, Professor Jabulani Makhubele, Dr Marcel van der Watt, and Ms. Susan Marx.
Khulisa looks forward to contributing to a greater understanding of this phenomena in South Africa, and contributing to strengthening policy and practice in counter-trafficking measures in South Africa.
As a preliminary research activity, Khulisa conducted a Landscape Review of the existing literature and understanding of TIP in South Africa. A number of challenges of the existing knowledge base were identified; such as the covert nature and the challenges of determining the prevalence of the phenomena. The summary of this report is available to download below.
