Domestic Work Case Study (Lead EUI)

This research on the demand-side of trafficking in the domestic work sector is part of the DemandAT project, an interdisciplinary research that brings together nine partners across seven European countries. The domestic work case study is one of the five empirical case studies undertaken under the DemandAT project.

A major feature of domestic work in many countries is that it is an informal working arrangement, often involving migrants in an irregular status, making them particularly vulnerable to exploitation. WP8 has three main objectives. First of all, the types of domestic work that may involve extreme forms of exploitation and abuse will be investigated, including forced labour and trafficking in human beings. Secondly, the dynamics between demand for trafficking and supply, i.e. people vulnerable to trafficking, will be examined. Finally, a set of measures will be proposed for national and international policy-makers, with a view to stepping up actions to combat trafficking in human beings for exploitation in domestic work and other severe forms of exploitation of domestic workers. On the basis of research in seven different countries: Belgium, UK, France, Greece, Italy, Cyprus and the Netherlands, the research will examine what kind of work is involved in trafficking in human beings in the domestic work sector, what are the motivations and the profits behind it and the circumstances that allow it to take place.
