Women and Children trafficking in Bangladesh has experienced a significant increase in the recent years. According to different sources around four to five hundred women and children are being trafficked through twenty transits points with India. Almost all of them are sold for servitude, prostitution and forced labor. Bangladesh had some scattered regulations in different laws. Gradually it came up with Prevention and Suppression of Human Trafficking Act 2012 to fight back human trafficking in the whole country. The whole thesis examines the attributes of human trafficking in the whole country. It also smirks a comprehensive discussion on the present legal developments regarding human trafficking. Side by side it proposes for a unanimous definition of trafficking for better monitoring and inspection of the whole phenomenon. Moreover it seeks for some feasible mechanisms to control human trafficking and save innocent lives from getting spoiled. After a comprehensive analysis of the different issues regarding human trafficking, shortcomings in the laws and practice will be brought out. Role of different agencies and concerned ministry will be thoroughly demonstrated. The policy gaps between different government organs and the role of society as well as local government in the transit points will also be figured out. Moreover, feasible and compact recommendations will be made to protect women and children from trafficking and wreck trafficking from its root.
