THEME OF THE SEMINAR
HUMAN TRAFFICKING: A SOCIO-LEGAL FACET OF MODERN WORLD
Human trafficking is the fastest increasing criminal industry in today’s world, coming in second after illegal drug-trade. This type of slaver has been traced back to the ancient Mesopotamian and Mediterranean civilization and has continued to grow. Human trafficking is a multi-faceted threat.
India has become a source, destination and transit country for men, woman, and children trafficked for forced labour and commercial sexual exploitation. India has become a transit hub for human trafficking with estimated millions, victim to human trafficking. Safety and security, the privileges of living in a free country are compromised.
Many of the victims are forced either directly with violence or indirectly with psychological blackmail into the trade. Women & Children are subject to involuntary servitude as factory workers, domestic servants, beggars, agricultural workers and many times they are also sexually abused by their owners.
The Indian government has laid down laws in the Constitution like the Suppression of Immoral Traffic in Women and Girls Act, 1956, The Immoral Traffic (Prevention) Act, and many others.
In 2007, three state governments established anti-trafficking police units, the first of this kind in the India.
India is a signatory of many international conventions and treaties as such Protocol to Prevent, Suppress and Punish Trafficking in Persons, especially Women and Children, Optional Protocol on the Sale of Children, Child Prostitution and Child Pornography, ILO Abolition of Forced Labour Convention, 1957 (No. 105) and many more.
Despite, India has still become a transit hub for human trafficking with estimated millions, victim to human trafficking.
