Friday 26 September 2014
The book named « Delinquents and victims : Eastern Europe children trafficking in France » written by the sociologist Olivier Peyroux and Caritas Price-Winner – France Institute 2013, brings a new and yet original approach of the human trafficking theme-based, one that supports protection of minors caming from Eastern Europe and victims of the human traffic in France. Olivier Peyroux reveals the complexity of the phenomenon. The author highlights the obvious strategies implemented by the traffickers to keep practicing their influence on their victims. Often, traffickers use persuasion by blackmailing their victims, reminding them the costs of “recruiting” them, pressuring victims by controlling their minds and challenging their families relationships, as criminal networks are, too many often, based on family bonds, real or fake, and tends to increase the faithfulness of the human trafficking victims. The potential willpower to get out of this situation, staging a demonstration by many of the victims of the human trafficking, is exploited by traffickers, glittering the perspective of a better life abroad. Those victims often develop loyalty when assured to be promoted by becoming future recruiter to « educate » newer victims.
Olivier Peyroux points out that human trafficking is not a cultural topic. This traffic remains in different forms and different organized networks. His books also shows us what little means we have to support minors, victims of human trafficking. Politics often have a security approach, at the expense of helping victims, considered juvenile offenders. Punishing traffickers tends to take leads, opposed to protecting the victims
