The Office of the Special Rapporteur(OSRT) under the National Human Rights
Commission(NHRC)is mandated to monitor the incidence of trafficking in persons
(TIP), coordinate national, regional and international efforts to combat crime of trafficking and publish Annual Reports on Situation of TIP in Nepal. The OSRT NHRC has already published five National Reports since 2005. This National Report entitled Trafficking in Persons Especially Women and Children is the continuous of the previous National Reports. The key aims of this National Report were to assess the status and emerging trends of TIP in Nepal; explore the nexus between foreign labor migrations and trafficking; monitor the anti-trafficking initiatives; measure the level of legal enforcement and judicial responses of TIP in Nepal and recommend policies and programs for combating TIP. This Report covers the period of FY 2011/12-2012/13 but in case of monitoring the anti-trafficking initiatives carried out by NGOs it covers the period of January 2012-June 2013. The Report utilized both primary and secondary data. Secondary data were collected from different Governmental and Non-Governmental Organizations (NGOs) including the Judiciary. Both published and unpublished data was used. The primary data were collected through administering the questionnaire to NGOs about their initiatives and through consultation workshops conducted among female workers in the entertainment sectors. The Preliminary Draft Report was shared with the concerned GOs, I/NGOs and NHRC staff and the feedback from the consultation workshop was incorporated in the Final Report. This Report is guided by the NHRC fourth Strategic Plan 2011-2014. The Fourth Strategic Plan has identified 8 priority issues.Among them,‘support to increase realization of Economic, Social and Cultural rights and promotion and protection of collective/group rights’ is the one priority area where NHRC aims to promote the collective rights such as rights of children, women rights and migrant rights through monitoring and advocating for the rights, lobbying for effective remedies and review of laws, policies and practices, holding dialogue and working with the NHRIs of Nepali migrant receiving countries. The context of the Report is set through review of concerns raised by the UN Committee on the Elimination of Discrimination against Women, CEDAW (fourth and fifth combined report of Nepal, 2011) and various concerns raised by the international human rights bodies for the protection and promotion of child rights and migrant workers’ rights. The CEDAW Committee urges the Government of Nepal (GoN) to fully implement Article 6 of the Convention by collecting and analyzing data on all aspects of trafficking; implementing the Human Trafficking and Transportation (Control) Act, 2007 (hereafter HTTCA 2007); strengthening preventive measures; strengthening efforts to cooperate at the international, regional and bilateral levels; ensuring the effective implementation of the SAARC Convention; ratifying the United Nations Protocol to Prevent, Suppress and Punish Trafficking in Persons, Especially Women and Children 2000 (hereafter UN Protocol on Trafficking) supplementing the UN Convention against Transnational Organized Crime and providing information and training to the criminal justice actors, prosecutors, legal professionals, immigration and border police, and social workers.
