Goal 8.7 of the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals aims to eradicate forced labour, modern slavery, and human trafficking worldwide by 2030. Among these challenges, the trafficking of women and children stands out as a severe violation of fundamental human rights, particularly in the context of the complex socio-cultural and geographical dynamics of the India-Nepal border. There are also significant data gaps concerning the trafficking of children in the region, and limited awareness about existing legislative measures to address the issue.

Bringing together leading experts from India and Nepal, the event at ORF will examine the unique drivers of cross-border child trafficking; the intricate relationship between child trafficking and undocumented migration; counter-trafficking mechanisms and ways to strengthen them; as well as measures for repatriating and rehabilitating child survivors.
