Abstract:This study examines labour exploitation involving members of the Nigerian community in Italy, as well as forced labour in four Nigerian states, viz. Akwa Ibom, Edo, Enugu and Kano. The research was carried out as part of the project 'Enhancing the cooperation to fight trafficking in human beings from Nigeria to Europe'. In the first part of the study, on the situation in Italy, Francesco Carchedi examines the Nigerian community in the context of Italian immigration, the cycle of human trafficking and exploitation, the cases of a number of Nigerian victims, the conditions of severe exploitation of Nigerian workers in specific local contexts, and aspects of law enforcement and cooperation between Italy and Nigeria. In the second part, on forced labour in Nigeria, Akinyinka Akinyoade and Bukola Adeyemi Oyeniyi give an overview of the literature on human trafficking for forced labour. John Agbonifo presents a review of the labour market and forced labour in Nigeria. Olaide Gbadamosi compares Nigerian legislation with international legislation on forced labour and human trafficking. The fifth chapter of this part reports the results of 78 interviews conducted in Akwa Ibom, Edo, Enugu and Kano states by A. Akinyoda, O. Sanwo, R. Iheme, D. Garba, R. Kuffon, and N. Nwawene. The introduction and conclusion are by Akinyinka Akinyoade. [ASC Leiden abstract]
