About the Workshop

Maharashtra National Law University Mumbai is one of the premier institutions of India imparting legal education.

International Justice Mission (IJM) is a global organisation that protects the most vulnerable from violence and oppression. IJM collaborates with local, state and national governments and grassroots organisations to protect the poor from violent forms of injustice, such as bonded labour and sex trafficking in India.

The necessity to address human trafficking as a transnational crime is highly significant as it defines the problem not as a territorial crime but as a phenomenon tied to international organised crime.

Workshop Date: 20th March 2018

Themes of the Workshop

  1. The deliberation upon the extra-territorial or trans-national nature of the crimes like cross- border terrorism, human trafficking, drug trafficking, arms trafficking smuggling, money laundering among others.
  2. The propelling elements for the expedient growth of these crimes like globalization, socio-economic inequality, intolerance and others may be explored.
  3. The thorough examination of the suppressive laws on human trafficking at both international and domestic levels will form the focal theme of the workshop.
  4. The practical difficulties in reaching the uniformity by states for instance in defining a human trafficking, in specifying punitive relief, delayed ratification, victim rehabilitation may be identified.
  5. The proper conceptualization of human trafficking, structuring/modification of the existing domestic laws and their enforcement.
