Highlights:
1. One of the most used definition of Trafficking in Persons is in the Protocol to prevent, suppress, and punish trafficking in persons, especially women and children,supplementing the United Nations Convention against Transnational Organised Crime
2."Child" means any person under eighteen years of age.The Nepali Human Trafficking and Transportation(Control) Act, 2064 considers as Human Trafficking and Transportation:i. If anyone commits any of the following acts, that shall be deemed to have committed human trafficking ii. If anyone commits any of the following acts that shall be deemed to have committed human transportation
3. In a less secure environment, such as after an earthquake, there is a risk that trafficking of children and women will increase. Specifically, children who have been separated from their families—either as a direct result of the earthquake, or because families feel they can no longer care for their children—are particularly vulnerable to trafficking and exploitation
4.Furthermore,due to increased difficulties in livelihood in Nepal, many women and men seek employment opportunities abroad.Some of them might end of being trafficked at some point(before or after going abroad)
5.Child trafficking is a complex issue and some of the key determinants of trafficking include poverty, loss of parents, lack of awareness among the most vulnerable segments of the population, low levels of education,gender discrimination, rapid urbanization, false promises and beliefs and lack of employment opportunities.
