Fulbright Monthly Lecture and Policy Discussion Series to Celebrate the 70th Anniversary of US-Nepal Relations Almost every week brings new heart-wrenching stories about Nepalis forced into exploitative labor situations or the sex industry in India, the Middle East, and other parts of Asia. Over 6,000 Nepalis, mostly unmarried women and children, are trafficked each year. Even more tragically, this number surged by 15 percent after the 2015 earthquakes, as conditions worsened for families in Sindhupalchowk and other hard-hit regions.
This wide-ranging panel brings together an NGO expert, a field worker from Eastern Nepal, and a law enforcement official to examine both forced labor and sexual trafficking. Their experiences and insights will help us understand the lived realities of victims, the social conditions of a changing Nepal that makes trafficking possible, and policing efforts at interdiction. Please come join the conversation.
