Revising the 2003 law on land in Viet Nam: Creating Equitable Treatment for Land Use Right Holders

This brief makes recommendations (issued by the United Nations, World Bank, Asian Development Bank, European Union Delegation to Viet Nam, Embassies of Australia, Canada, Finland, Germany, Ireland, New Zealand, Norway, Sweden, Switerland, United Kingdon and United States of America, and Oxfam)  for the revision of the 2003 Land Law. The suggested revisions are designed to ensure that farmers (or rural land use right holders more generally) are treated in ways that are equivalent to other land use right holders. This change will raise rural income and welfare and enable farmers to participate fully in Viet Nam’s modernization.

Review of Vietnamese Migration Abroad

A comprehensive understanding of migration trends in Viet Nam is a pre-requisite for the implementation of safe, appropriate and effective migration policies and laws in the country. To this end, the Consular Department of the Vietnamese Foreign Ministry, in cooperation with IOM Viet Nam and with European Union (EU) funding, carried out this study entitled "National Migration Profile: A Review of Vietnamese Migration Abroad". Conducted from July to November 2011, the study is based on data of Vietnamese migration abroad since the enactment of the 1986 Doi Moi policy, with a particular focus on the period 2006-2011. The National Migration Profile has led to several recommendations for promoting international migration, limiting its potential negative impacts and protecting the legal rights and interests of Vietnamese nationals who migrate and reside abroad.

Assessment Report on reintegration support models for victims of trafficking in Viet Nam

The Government of Viet Nam has completed the first phase National Plan of Action (NPA) on Counter-trafficking for the period 2006 – 2010 and has developed the next NPA for the period 2011 – 2015. The "Assessment Report on Reintegration Support Models for Victims of Trafficking in Viet Nam" intends to inform the Vietnamese Government's protection efforts under the NPA by assessing the relevance, effectiveness, efficiency and sustainability of the existing models of return, recovery and reintegration projects undertaken by the Ministry of Labour, Invalids and Social Affairs (MOLISA) in partnership with IOM. The knowledge and recommendations from the evaluation will be used not only to refine the existing programme but also to set a strategic direction for future technical support and advocacy to provincial and central authorities, including new projects in the field of victim protection.

This report is published by IOM Vietnam in partnership with the Department of Social Evils Prevention (DSEP) of MOLISA under an IOM/MOLISA project funded by the IOM Development Fund. The report, together with the recorded achievements, challenges and lessons learned, will provide a basis for capacity – building and advocacy. Information on effective practices and practical recommendations will serve as important inputs to the developments of relevant policies and design of programmes for supporting victims of trafficking.

The Viet Nam Provincial Governance and Public Administration Performance Index (PAPI) 2011

Measuring citizens’ experiences

“People know, people discuss, people do and people verify” is a Vietnamese phrase that perhaps best summarizes the goals of the Provincial Governance and Public Administration Performance Index (PAPI). PAPI provides objective information about citizens’ experiences and interactions with local authorities, thus “people know”. It provides a means for the discussion and validation of findings at central and local levels in order for people to discuss. PAPI illuminates the collective experience of what citizens do, enabling policy makers to act in their interests, thereby fulfilling the precept that “people do”. Finally, PAPI provides a tool to assess actual administrative performance allowing people to verify.

On the basis of the findings of this study, recommendations on possibilities for reforming the legislative framework for civil society in Viet Nam can be drawn.

Harsh punishment for child offenders doesn’t prevent further criminality

The age at which a child, can be held criminally liable is a controversial issue around the world. Within Viet Nam, this issue is currently being grappled with in the Penal Code amendments. Some argue that a "get tough on crime" approach is necessary to punish children to prevent further criminality.

However, international research shows that because of their developmental stages, labelling and treating children as criminals at an early age can have serious negative impacts on their development and successful rehabilitation.

UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon’s message for World AIDS Day, observed on 1 December

 

Thirty-five years since the emergence of AIDS, the international community can look back with some pride.  But we must also look ahead with resolve and commitment to reach our goal of ending the AIDS epidemic by 2030.

There has been real progress in tackling the disease. More people than ever are on treatment.  Since 2010, the number of children infected through mother to child transmission has dropped by half. Fewer people die of AIDS related causes each year.  And people living with HIV are living longer lives.

The number of people with access to life-saving medicines has doubled over the past five years, now topping 18 million. With the right investments, the world can get on the fast-track to achieve our target of 30 million people on treatment by 2030.  Access to HIV medicines to prevent mother to child transmission is now available to more than 75 per cent of those in need.
