DIE HELFER UND
DIE FRAUEN / THE PEACEKEEPERS AND THE WOMEN
„Trafficking“ of persons has increased dramatically in recent years, especially in South Eastern Europe. The forcible abduction of women and girls or their recruitment under false pretences in order to then force them into prostitution, has become a shadow economy in Bosnia-Herzegovina and especially in Kosovo. This is one of the results of the wars being fought in the area – with the help of Nato – and the presence of international troops and relief organisations. Karin Jurschick, who had her first big success with the documentary IT SHOULD HAVE BEEN NICE AFTER THAT in 2001, exposes the correlations and structures of Trafficking, without resorting to conventional means of investigative journalism. Honoured with the Grimme Award 2004.
