Long Abstract: This paper was prepared for the Seminar on Promoting Gender Equality to Combat Trafficking In Women and Children, hosted by The United Nations Development Fund for Women, in co-operation with United Nations Economic and Social Commission for Asia and the Pacific and the Swedish Ministry for Foreign Affairs on 7-9 October 2002 in Bangkok. It argues that the role of livelihood opportunities for women and girls in the prevention of trafficking must be seen within the total economic and social context of migration and trafficking. To this end, adequate prevention calls for an integrated and multi-sectoral approach that addresses migration and trafficking within the context of overall national and development policy. This paper concludes that it is time for a more comprehensive and critical review of the role of economic opportunities and empowerment as strategies for prevention of trafficking and rehabilitation of the survivors of trafficking. Key issues for review include trafficking as a component of the continuum of population mobility, the role of economic factors on both the supply and demand sides in generating population mobility in general and trafficking in particular, and the relative roles of micro interventions and macro economic policies.
