'On n’est jamais aussi bien que dans sa famille' : Les « politiques du retour » des victimes de la traite des êtres humains en Bulgarie

Abstract : In the early 2000s, the Bulgarian government formulated “return policies” targeting people identified as victims of human trafficking, in response to international injunctions and pressure from groups in the civil society. This paper explores these policies from the perspective of the refuges where the victims receive psychological and social assistance. By reconstructing the development of these refuges, it sheds light on an informal process of institutionalization, connected with the emergence of a projects approach in which assistance programs are often ephemeral and reflect competing and changing views in the framing of human trafficking as a public issue. The analysis of the process through which care workers bring to light the suffering of the victims underscores the tension (1) between assigned identities and assumed but alienated identity, (2) between individualized case management and profiling, and (3) between imposed immobility and migration trajectories. These tensions explain the failure of these “social reintregration” policies.
