The trafficking of lives
Trafficking, exploitation and criminal organizations
by Fabrizio Floris
There is a phenomenon that was thought to be relegated to the pages of history books and instead is found in the heart of Western cities. It is the trafficking of human beings, the equation of human life with a commodity, and according to the estimates of the International Labor Organization (ILO) 40 million people exploited sexually, at work, for begging and illegal activities. The research presented in the volume investigated, through interviews with social workers and public officials, questionnaires and focus groups, the condition of victims of trafficking from Nigeria. At the same time, there is a large reception network that looks at the person, his rights and his needs. The book accounts for this complexity: from exploitation, to law enforcement actions, to acceptance and redemption.
