Trafficking in women and children in India in the context of judicial response method & strategy of prevention-a socio-legal study


Dr. Niranjan Parida

Trafficking in women and children is one of the most despicable forms of violations of human rights. In other words it is to said that, Trafficking in women and children is one of the worst abuses of human rights. But it is very difficult to estimate the scale of the phenomenon as trafficking is closely related to child labour, bonded labour, child marriage, kidnapping and abduction and prostitution even though these phenomena can exist also independent of trafficking. Research on trafficking in human beings is vital to ensuring adequate prevention, protection and assistance to trafficked persons and the prosecution of criminals. Ongoing research is necessary in several key areas, notably on the characteristics of trafficked persons and the conditions of vulnerability; on the techniques of the traffickers; on the scope of the problem, including numbers of trafficked persons; and to monitor, evaluate and assess the impact of prevention and rehabilitation efforts in order to ensure that funded programmes are in fact effective. This paper is an attempt to present the trends and dimensions of trafficking from a judicial response method and strategy of prevention paradigm and demystify several issues surrounding it. The human rights discourses is profoundly silent on this major issue which snatches away most of the human rights from the most vulnerable group. It has immense implications for future course as India is fast becoming a source, transit point as well as a destination for traffickers. The Government of India does not fully meet the minimum standards for the elimination of trafficking; however, it is making significant efforts to do so.
