Domestic workers, especially live-in workers, are frequently victims of exploitation, including severe abuse and trafficking. This seems to be overlooked by public debate and policies on trafficking. By highlighting the factors producing domestic workers’ vulnerability to exploitation as well as the inadequacies of Italian legal and political responses, this policy brief calls for the need to adopt a comprehensive approach to trafficking and severe exploitation in domestic work through the implementation of concerted measures of different natures.
