Conference on Human Exploitation and Trafficking for National Awareness

17th & 18th January 2022

Trafficking does not exist in a vacuum. There exists an ecosystem of intersections with different industries both legitimate and illegitimate to facilitate trafficking. Trafficking of any kind leads to physical, mental and emotional degradation of human life. As the sanctity of human life is of utmost importance, human trafficking dismantles opportunities and hopes of an individual.

The COVID 19 Pandemic has enhanced the vulnerability of the poor and marginalized families to human trafficking. India as a source, transit and destination country, in its 75 years of Independence, has striven to abolish slavery and human trafficking. 2021 is celebrated as Azaadi Ka Amrit Mahotsav (आज़ादी का अमृत महोत्सव) across the country, the Conference on Human Exploitation and Trafficking for National Awareness shall encourage dialogue on the contemporary challenges confronted by stakeholders and their evolving role in combatting human trafficking. The focus of the conference shall be to discuss India’s progress in combating trafficking while charting a roadmap for future collaborative and multilateral interventions.

Objectives of CHETNA

Why this conference?

India is home to the second-largest population and the largest adolescent population in the world. Trafficking is too complex to accurately measure, the numbers involved are significant. Despite numerous policies, legislative and field interventions, it is estimated that 8 million people are living in modern slavery in India.

Human trafficking impact can be witnessed in society, economy, health and rule of law. The scale of trafficking deals a particular blow to gender equality and women’s rights, strain on law enforcement and affects security and health systems. In economic terms, human trafficking results in irretrievable loss of human resources and future productivity and remittances implying a loss to development. The physical, sexual, and emotional health of trafficked persons is compromised with long-term physical, psychological issues and is threatening the security of vulnerable populations.

2021 being celebrated as Azaadi Ka Amrit Mahotsav (आज़ादी का अमृत महोत्सव) is a unique opportunity to reflect on India’s efforts in combatting human trafficking while fostering collaborative and multilateral interventions.
