Asia-Pacific: Singapore

ICMEC Singapore

Since 2009, our regional office in Singapore has been working throughout the Asia-Pacific region to build cooperation and collaboration among organizations and individuals concerned with combating child abduction, sexual abuse and exploitation.

What does ICMEC Singapore do?

  • We have developed country-specific APAC-FCACP efforts in a number of countries, drawing on research by Allen & Overy.
  • We support training and capacity building for law enforcement agencies.
  • In 2010, we hosted the region’s first expert working group on child protection, with representatives from 11 Asian countries, drawn from the ranks of government ministries, NGOs, and academic institutions. They gathered to discuss a draft of a model law focusing on the protection of children.
