Investigating Possible Government Misreporting from 2009-2020 of Data on Human Trafficking in India

Ananya Ganesh

Abstract: Human trafficking is defined as the movement of people from one place to another through force or coercion into situations of exploitation, usually for the economic benefit of traffickers. Rates of human trafficking in India are high, with poverty and a lack of job opportunities being among the main causes. Data reported by the National Crime Records Bureau has been called into question by many prominent news organisations, activists and NGOs. This study will evaluate the accuracy of government reported data using literature on human trafficking in India from 2009-2020.
