Abstract

This study is a collaborative effort between the Asia Foundation (Kathmandu) and the Horizons project of the Population Council (New Delhi) to document the current intervention models and community-based study of human trafficking in the context of an emerging HIV/AIDS epidemic in Nepal. To address the human rights component of trafficking, the three components of this study focus on the rights and needs of trafficked persons as well as those who are vulnerable to trafficking. An analysis and assessment of the effectiveness of laws, policies, and interventions in the apprehension, prosecution, and conviction of alleged traffickers is not included in the scope of this project. Conceptual clarity is needed in both policies and interventions on trafficking—in particular, in its relation to migration and sex work. Adopting a human rights framework and basing interventions on sound research may help to clarify current trafficking discourses.
