CHENNAI: There is no interdisciplinary approach while dealing with human trafficking, said Nehru Yuva Kendra Sangathan’s Executive Director, Mr. Veerendra Misra, IPS, here yesterday. During a ‘National Seminar on Human Trafficking’ organized by University of Madras and a well respected NGO working in the field of human rights, The International Justice Mission, IJM, the IPS officer said the dimensions of human trafficking in India was limited to sex and labour trafficking. Trafficking was understood as only organ trafficking, in the medical sector. Misra emphasized that the system needed to evolve and accommodate other forms of human trafficking such as exploitation for clinical trials, trafficking for adoption and surrogacy mafia. Each case of trafficking had a social system backing it. Sex trafficking might happen in brothels or could be practiced by some communities. Misra believed that two cases could never be treated the same way as one might need criminal intervention while the other needed social intervention.  “The criminal justice system comprises prevention, protection, prosecution and participation; while we have to strengthen our social justice system that takes care of rescue, rehabilitation and reintegration,” he said. The Police were involved in dealing with victims of human trafficking, while there were hardly any psychologists or counsellors who were a part of anti-trafficking cells. Victims, especially children, were more likely to speak to non-uniformed authorities. Participating in the seminar Dr Lalitha Kumaramangalam, Chairperson, National Commission for Women, New Delhi said, ‘’India had one of the best laws against human trafficking but failed in implementation as there was no “inter-sectoral co-ordination”.  ]]>
