Title: Study on Demand Side of Trafficking of Children and Women in Nepal

Abstract: Human trafficking is a criminal, clandestine and collaborative act. It is a commercial, multidimensional phenomenon with indivisibility of supply and demand. Realizing the gaps in understanding the ‘demand side’ of trafficking of children and women in the Asia region, this study was conducted in five South-East Asian countries namely, Nepal, Bangladesh, Pakistan, Sri-Lanka and Indonesia.  This regional study provides an in-depth understanding of the 'demand for' and the 'demand side' of trafficking in women and children. More specifically the study examines the dynamics and the enabling environment with reference to the demand for trafficked labor and the demand side of trafficking, in particular that of girls, boys and women.
