Abstract:This book examines human trafficking and exploitation of Eritrean refugees. It argues that a deliberate policy of impoverishment and human rights abuses exists, and that individuals within Eritrea, and particularly within the ruling party, benefit from the smuggling and trafficking of Eritrean refugees. It also analyses the role of information communication technologies (ICTs) in these practices. Special sections are dedicated to trauma and healing, vulnerable groups like minors and women, the connections between human trafficking, terrorism and organ trafficking, and the question of accountability, international responses and the need for adequate policies.
