Advocacy and Social Action in India: Controlling Human Trafficking and Prostitution by Enhancing Social Justice and Awakening
September 22 | 9:00 - 10:00 AM | Room 2584
This workshop will focus on the historical perspective of human trafficking and prostitution in India, a legacy of the British Empire since the ingress of the East India Company in 1612 till 1947. Participants will be enlightened with British plans of dominating India by making Indian culture seem inferior, and actions initiated by the Government of India and active NGOs to update the laws for controlling human trafficking and prostitution. This presentation will discuss how police are being trained to combat the tactics of the traffickers and pimps and training and empowering the victims to escape from their clutches.
