Sex trafficking is a global problem in the sense that incidents meeting the UN protocol’s definition are occurring in many regions of the world. However, little is accomplished with sweeping analyses that treat all cases of trafficking as if they are alike. The forms, shapes, and meaning of these events are deeply wedded to local conditions and local systems of understanding. The individuals at risk, the survivors, and the perpetrators are all defined by discourses that emerge from within particular sociopolitical contexts. In this book, I have focused on the sociopolitical context of sex trafficking from Nepal to India with the goal of showing how the phenomenon is understood within Nepal, what social forces impinge on it, what interventions have been undertaken, and how particular discourses affect the consequences of interventions in both intended and unintended ways.
