April 01, 2016
Goa, since the late 1980s has been a popular destination. A harsh reality that came to light was the involvement of a few tourists in the exploitation of children.

This research explores the inter-linkages between three areas: children, tourism and migration.

This piece of legislation promised rights to millions of adivasis and forest dwelling communities.
