Trafficking of human beings is an organised targeted crime in order to lead or drive a human being into exploitative conditions with the aim to make profits (MHA Advisories, 2013). Millions of children and young women are trafficked around the world for forced labour. Trafficking for forced labour as we define in our paper is not restricted to any particular form or industry - it takes place for commercial sexual exploitation, child labour or bonded labour. Despite trafficking being prohibited as per the Constitution of India, it remains a large-scale lucrative industry. The purpose of our paper is to bring to the forefront a comprehensive analysis for public awareness, lobbying and advocacy against the garish realities of forced labour, focusing on child domestic labor (CDL) and commercial sexual exploitation (CSE).
The main objective of our study was to conduct a data-driven statistical analysis to effectively highlight the characteristics, extent, mechanisms and movement of money involved in CDL and CSE.
