The purpose of this study is to investigate the correlation between human trafficking and a catastrophe situation as well as to uncover which initiatives and projects can be successful in preventing and abolishing human trafficking in times of acute crisis. To achieve this purpose, the paper uses global governance and good governance theory to analyse how a network-governed process took place following the earthquake in Nepal in 2015, and how it worked to hinder the assumed rise in human trafficking of up to 20 percent. Networks are comprised of actors with various expertise and experience, which some sources find beneficial for the overall problem solving. However, during times of acute crisis networks also face challenges in coordination and communication, which may challenge the overall situation even more. The analysis is based on empirical data gathered during a two-week field trip to Nepal, where interviews were conducted with victims of trafficking, local NGO’s, international organisations and official authorities. Furthermore, the empirical data consists of reports, evaluations and other secondary sources gathered as part of the research process. The paper concludes that a network-governed process can be ideal and highly efficient in dealing with human trafficking, but only if the network has a successful cooperation and interaction with each other as well as the victims.
