Abstract

The purpose of this research is to address and discuss on the implementation of the Malaysia's Anti- Trafficking in Person and Anti-Smuggling of Migrants Act 2007 pertaining to the victim protection provided under Part V of the Act. A comparative study will be made with the legislation from the other country and in our case, to the United States' Trafficking Victim Protection Act 2000 in reference to the Trafficking Victim Protection Reauthorization Act 2003, 2005 and 2008. Throughout this research several objectives will be pursued and achieved, which are, to critically analyse the adequacy of the Anti- Trafficking in Person Act (2007) in providing protections for the trafficking victims in Malaysia, tomake a comparison between the Anti- Trafficking in Person Act (2007) and the United States' Trafficking Victim Protection Act 2000 in relating to the trafficking victims' protection and to suggest some recommendations in order to improve the Anti- Trafficking in Person Act (2007) in providing the ample protection for the trafficking victims in Malaysia. So as to provide reliable data and sources, this research will adopt a qualitative research which involved a collection of data and it will involve a complete, thick and detailed description of the analysis of the research. In addition, we will be using both the doctrinal research and empirical research. We will mainly conduct our research through library research that includes the internet research and primary data. Firstly, on library research we will be using primary and secondary sources. We will review the recent legislated law. books, journals, and newspaper that are related with our research. Then, on the internet research we will use internet journals, e-books and any related internet sources that focus on the trafficking victim protection that we can find such as in LexisNexis and Sage Journals. Secondly, we will be conducting the empirical research which involved field work in order for us to get our primary data to the research. We will be conducting a semistructure interview where we will be choose a suitable person such as legal practitioner, law lecturer and also from statutory body such as an immigration officer. This interview will be conducted either through face to face, emails, or telephone calls' interview. The aim of this interview is to gather more information and clarification in the research of trafficking victim protection. When the literature and sources has been obtained, we will analyse it using the data analysis software.
