Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
Human trafficking is one of the biggest social problems in Nepal with over 12.000 Nepali women and children being trafficked over the border to India every year. Despite the scale and the severe consequences of trafficking in the Nepalese society, very little is known about efforts to rehabilitate survivors of human trafficking. The purpose of this study was to illustrate the rehabilitation methods and interventions in Nepal. It is based on the results from five interviews with three different nongovernmental organizations in Nepal. The result from this study shows that counseling is the main intervention for rehabilitation of the mental health of victims of trafficking. Findings also showed that nongovernmental organizations in Nepal also use other interventions to integrate the women back into the society, such as skills training, education and physiological treatment. To better understand these interventions and to conceptualize our findings we have used different theories such as, Empowerment, Crises work and Cognitive Behavioral Therapy. We have also used Hasenfelds organization theory which helps to illustrate the work structure in the organizations behind the methods and interventions. Result showed that people-changing is the main organizational strategy for the nongovernmental organizations. The study has practical implications in that it highlights the need for, not only more resources, but also an awareness of the complexity of the issue of rehabilitation as well as the need for a multitude of interventions.
