A High Stakes 'Game' - How traffickers exploit young Bangladeshis’ dreams of escape to Europe

  • Corruption
  • Human Rights
  • Migration
  • Trafficking

Faced with poverty and lack of opportunities, young Bangladeshis often dream of a better life in Europe that will allow them to provide for their families. Dalaals or ‘travel agents’ encourage and capitalise upon these hopes. Among those that take the risky journey to Italy known as 'the game' are hundreds of unaccompanied minors. The reality that greets them is often one of misery, exploitation, and slavery.
