Community Perceptions of Trafficking and its Determinants in Nepal
In recent years, Nepal has attracted a lot of attention for its growing problem of trafficking in women and children. At present there is scarce information to support and inform efforts to both combat trafficking and reduce women’s and girl’s vulnerability to HIV/AIDS. To address this gap the Asia Foundation, Kathmandu and Horizons/Population Council, New Delhi undertook a field-based study to identify perceptions, knowledge and attitudes of community members about the roles and opportunities ascribed to women, the need and benefits of migration, the existence of trafficking and determinants of vulnerability to trafficking. At the same time this study also examines attitudes and practices related to reintegration of trafficked persons.
