After graduating from Miranda House, University of Delhi in Political Science, I have spent a year working with an organization that rehabilitates women and children who have been rescued from trafficking. I was closely involved in the first response team that worked with rescue teams of Delhi Police. Currently, I am pursuing a master’s degree in International Relations from Jadavpur University, Kolkata. My SYLFF research studies the existing processes of rehabilitation in governmental and non-governmental sector. In analyzing the processes, the primary focus will be on the role agency of survivors play. It is largely going to take the shape of a legal and policy narrative.
