‘Women’ trafficking in India: Unearthing the key vulnerability factors using interpretative structural modeling
Dr. Vanisree Ramanthan and Jaisy George
Human Trafficking is not a person-centric issue; nor is it a region-centric one but a serious threat to the world population and the international community severely condemns this threat. It is a complex phenomenon and the existing laws are seemingly unable to alter its magnitude. Human trafficking as is evident is a gender-neutral issue, the end result of which being exploitation, whether it be for nonconsensual labor, or for commercial sexual exploitation purposes. Here the researchers focus their attention towards human trafficking for commercial sexual activities, wherein women are at the receiving end. The researchers through this paper limiting their scope of study to the Indian women unearth the various vulnerability factors exposing women to trafficking. Through Interpretive Structure modeling the researchers then discover the prime vulnerability factor for women’s trafficking. In the concluding remarks, the researchers propose diverse steps to alleviate this complex phenomenon, which would positively enable the society to deal with this evil effectively.
