About the Book :

This book critically analyses the magnitude and various dimensions of the problem of trafficking in women and children. Exposing many myths and realities associated with the problem, it brings out the findings of the wide-ranging action research on trafficking in women and children carried out by the Institute of Social Sciences, New Delhi. It also outlines the gaps in law enforcement, inadequacy of rehabilitative measures, virtual immunity of the traffickers and brothel keepers, social apathy, and lack of political will to combat the scourge. The book will be of great use for policy makers, researchers, social scientists and development workers.
