Abstract This report presents the findings of a study on human trafficking and forced labour conducted in France, based on the accounts of Chinese migrant workers, institutions and charities. It first describes the research framework, and then examines the migration journey of Chinese migrants (causes for leaving, terms of the passage, migration route, living conditions in the host country). Means of fighting against human trafficking and forced labour are next analyzed. Finally, a collection of observations arte presented. The qualitative approach based on case descriptions allows the taking into account of the human and psychological aspects of migration, which are necessary conditions for approaching the concepts of vulnerability and victimization.
