Learning from our Actions – TCTIP Learning Papers



Winrock International is a nonprofit organization that works with people in the United States and around the world to empower the disadvantaged, increase economic opportunity, and sustain natural resources. Winrock’s five-year Thailand Counter Trafficking-in-Persons Project, funded by the U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID Thailand CTIP) has goals to reduce trafficking in persons in Thailand and to better protect rights of trafficked persons.

As a source, transit, and destination country, Thailand faces multiple manifestations of trafficking in persons (TIP), including forced labor. These are fueled by growth and demand for low-skilled labor in sectors such as agriculture and fishing, construction, and food processing. According to the 2016 US Department of State report on trafficking in persons (TIP report) Thailand has 3-4 million migrant workers, many of whom arrived undocumented from neighboring countries to find better paying jobs. More than 53% of unskilled migrant workers are youth. Large populations of ethnic minorities, highland persons, children from rural areas, stateless persons, and lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer and intersex (LGBTQI) individuals are also at increased risk for trafficking and exploitation due to difficulties they face resulting from discrimination. Forced labor is reported in many sectors, but the number of victims identified remains low because of inadequate screening, combined with hard-to-reach sectors where many migrants work and a lack of self-reporting.


USAID Thailand CTIP project is looking for a consultant to develop four learning papers based on the knowledge and lessons learned throughout the life to date of the project, and through the analysis of the  Monitoring and Evaluation (M&E) data across projects. Overlapping themes will be chosen such Private Sector Engagement, Social Behavior Change communication, Gender Equality and Social Inclusion, RTG engagement or others, as identified by the project.


These four papers will be produced in sets of two each: two to be completed by October 2021 and the final two to be completed by July 2022.  The consultant would be expected to design the methodology to answer the separate four research/learning questions (developed by USAID Thailand CTIP), conduct the research, and write the reports (approximately 15 pages each).

The research consultant(s) would be expected to start July 15th and complete the first 2 papers by the 11th of October 2021. The second 2 papers will be completed by the 31st of July 2022.
