Shyam Kumar Pokharel

Samrakshak Samuha Nepal (SASANE) (Unverified)
Joined July 2018
Interests: Gender-based violence, Labor & Employment, Livelihoods
I am a licensed attorney and have extensive experience in the human trafficking field, having served for the Nepal Supreme Court for more than 20 years before entering into the non-governmental organization sector as a human trafficking expert. I have been the author of numerous research papers regarding human trafficking, including, most recently, a well received study on human traffickers conducted in association with Daywalka Foundation in Nepal. My extensive experience in Nepal’s legal system uniquely positions me to tackle systemic injustices at all levels: from empowering trafficking survivors as paralegals to working with the supreme courts to establish critical precedents. For a long time, I have been involved in various academic as well as social activities related to inhumane sex exploitation of women and children and, legal and health rights for these groups of people. Currently I am working in a Non Governmental Organization known as “Samrakshak Samuha Nepal."
