Trafficking in persons, more specifically in women and children is very serious human rights problem in Nepal. The studies reveal that among others, the perpetrators often take advantage of poverty and ignorance among young and rural women to compel them to accept menace of trafficking. Available figures show that this menace has been increasing rapidly over the years. The National Human Rights Commission (NHRC) considers this offence as one of the worst form of human rights violations in contemporary Nepalese society. As an endeavor to ensure human rights of trafficking vulnerable and trafficking survivors, NHRC has taken up the issue strategically in its policies and plans. In order to address the issue of trafficking, NHRC has established the Office of the National Rapporteur on Trafficking in Women and Children (ONRT). The Report of the year 2006-2007 presents overall situation of trafficking of women and children in country with special focus on foreign labor employment and trafficking. Efforts have also been made to monitor impact of initiatives taken in combating trafficking in persons, and recommendations for mitigation of the problem. The NHRC has been actively working against the trafficking in persons since its beginning. The Commission has placed the elimination of trafficking as one of the eight strategic concerns of its Strategic Plan (2004-2008). The Strategic Objectives 4 and 5 were directly relevant for the control and prevention of trafficking in persons. The objective 4 states,‘to help improve the legislative and regulatory mechanisms for control and cessation of domestic and dowry related violence against women and trafficking of women’. The objective 5 states,‘to help improve legislative, monitoring and enforcing arrangements for the elimination of violence against children in the form of trafficking, abuse, exploitation and the use of children in conflict. Similarly, the Strategic Plan 2008-10 (draft) of the NHRC has included the protection and promotion of the right of the trafficking vulnerable under the strategic objective:gender equality, empowerment and combating violence and discrimination’.
