Abstract

This chapter shows how the ‘bare life’ of victims of trafficking is not simply an empty space, constituted through negation, but has to be constituted through knowledge and technologies about who the women are, their biographical profiles, their past and their probable future development. Rights are only granted to particular categories of women and only under certain conditions – the assessment of life undermines the political potential of rights and turns them into instruments of abjection.
