Trafficking in Women and Children in India

Sankar Sen (Author)

In a globalising world, trafficking in women and children for their economic and sexual exploitation continues. This book presents the research findings of Action Research on Trafficking in Women and Children in India (ARTWAC) that involved the United Nations Development Fund for Women, the National Human Rights Commission and the Institute of Social Sciences. The workings and processes of this unethical and illegal activity in India were uncovered and understood by researchers from ISS, New Delhi and several other partner NGOs from all over India who surveyed about 4,000 people across 12 Indian states, including traffickers, victims and survivors of commercial sexual exploitation, the 'client's, brothel owners, police officials and children working as bonded labour. Firmly grounded in a human rights approach, the first section of the book analyses the data generated by ARTWAC and gives detailed recommendations for improved judicial interventions, law enforcement and community participation in anti-trafficking strategies. The second section contains a rich collection of case studies, giving an on-ground picture of how exploiters have little or no respect for the rights of victims of trafficking. Trafficking in Women and Children in India is a must-have reference manual for those involved in judicial and legal interventions into the trafficking trade and for those involved in the struggle for upholding the rights of women and children in India.
