Course Description: Nepal has long been a source country for international labor migration with huge numbers of Nepali working in India and the Gulf countries, among others. Within Nepal, both adults and children migrate to urban centers in search for income. Labor exploitation is very common. Migrant children are systematically hired into brick manufacturing, carpet weaving and other hazardous industries. Domestic workers often work under slavery-like conditions. Both adult women and children are trafficked across the border into commercial sexual exploitation in Indian cities. Dalits (‘untouchables’) are especially vulnerable. This course will study the rights and protection of migrants, including children

The Payson Center for International Development offers intensive, two (2) to three (3) week long programs with one (1) to two (2) courses per location. Courses are open to Tulane and non-Tulane graduate level-students. All courses earn three (3) credits.
Setting Description:
This course will study the rights and protection of migrants, including children. Course participants will learn through visits to the International Labor Organization (ILO) and other organizations, including highly effective local projects against child trafficking and labor (Maiti Nepal, CWIN, etc.). Working on small case studies, they will propose solutions to specific problems within the local context.
