About the Workshop
Human Trafficking is a socio-legal problem that poses challenges to human rights and is one of the worst forms of human exploitation. It is considered a worldwide crisis, with around 40 million human traffickings recorded at the international level to date and the number is increasing at an alarming speed. India, the second-largest populated country, bears the brunt of human trafficking and urgently needs to halt such a heinous crime and design a proper redressal framework.
An effective Human Rights mechanism in theory and practice can effectively address and reverse such violations in the country. The emerging world order needs to be anchored on a practical discourse of human rights that values dignified life as a non-negotiable right. The declarations and covenants relating to human rights emphasised the requirement of the highest standards of a dignified existence. Article 8 of the International Covenant on the Civil and Political Rights, Articles 11, 12 of the International Covenant on the Economic, Social and Cultural Rights, Articles 4, 5 of the Universal
Declaration of Human Rights etc., are focused on the attainment of the same. At the national level, the Indian Constitution is the custodian of the human rights at the personal as well as the societal front. Article 23 of Part III of the Indian Constitution prohibits the trafficking of human beings. Despite the international and constitutional protections available, human trafficking remains a challenge.
This workshop aims to analyse and suggest effective remedies against human trafficking which negates the foundation of human rights. This the workshop aims at disseminating and prescribing practical steps of curbing such heinous practices by inviting the expressions of enthusiasts of human rights advocacy.

• Combating Child Trafficking – Constitutional Mandate and Judicial Approaches
