Identification Et Repression De L’Esclavage Domestique En France : « Peut Mieux Faire »…



    (Maître de Conférences a la Faculté Pluridisciplinaire de Bayonne, Centre de Documentation et de Recherches Européennes, FRANCE.)


Domestic slavery, one of the contemporary forms of slavery, appeared a few years ago in Europe. This new form of slavery forced thousands of victims, often underage, to work without financial counterpart and in harmful conditions to their liberty and dignity. The identification of this phenomenon reveals, firstly, the existence of a large amount of acts (International and European Law), and then, highlights the importance of the European Court of Human Rights (ECHR) regarding this subject in a judgement that condemned France. Thus, the deficiencies of the French apparatus for the repression of this phenomenon were secondly reported by the ECHR. However, they still remain, today, despite various reforms that turned out to be ineffective in the eye of the European requirements.
