«Trafficking of Sub-Saharan Migrant Women in Algeria». In the social organization of migrants in Algeria, women are often used for bartering. Taking advantage of their unfamiliarity with the new country, men organize the «placement» of women with other men. Using the pretext to provide protection and financial support, these women are forced to agree to «manage the household» and have sexual relations.
