Long Abstract: This paper was the plenary address given at a conference held in November 2002, 'The Human Rights Challenge of Globalization: Asia-Pacific-US: The Trafficking in Persons, Especially Women and Children'. The paper highlights the link between trafficking in human beings and globalisation, and notes that international human rights framework has not fully caught up with globalisation. It emphasises that trafficking must be seen in a broader context of labour migration and the movement of people from conflict zones and crisis situations as refugees and internally displaced persons. These movements interact with structures of gender equality at every level - nationally and globally, in families and communities. The paper provides various strategies for prevention of trafficking, including economic empowerment for women and girls, livelihood strategies, transforming gender-biased attitudes in countries of destination, and integrating human rights and development strategies. It is pointed out that ultimately, strategies to prevent trafficking must address the macroeconomic policies in both developed and developing countries that generate the push and pull factors in labour migration and thus, where that movement is illegal, directly promote trafficking.
