Merchants of men : how jihadists and Isis turned kidnapping and refugee trafficking into a multibillion-dollar business / Loretta Napoleoni

Seven Stories Press, [2017]

Abstract: È un business sofisticato quello che ogni giorno fa approdare migliaia di rifugiati sulle nostre coste. Chi lo controlla? Una nuova categoria di criminali, nata dalle disastrose risposte occidentali alla tragedia dell’11 settembre e dal collasso economico e politico di molti Stati-chiave in Africa e Medioriente. Tutto è cominciato con il traffico di cocaina, trasportata dalla Colombia in Europa lungo le rotte transahariane. Le stesse rotte sono servite per far perdere le tracce di decine di ostaggi occidentali, rapiti per finanziare gruppi terroristici e bande criminali, dopo la destabilizzazione della Siria e dell’Iraq e l’ascesa dell’lsis. Oggi su quelle piste viaggia un’altra merce: esseri umani, a milioni, in fuga da guerre e povertà verso un Occidente che credono più accogliente e più ricco di quanto non sia. Un commercio che costa migliaia di vite, e che vale miliardi. In una ricostruzione che si avvale di interviste esclusive a negoziatori, membri dei servizi segreti, esperti del contrasto al terrorismo e alla pirateria, ex ostaggi e molti altri, Loretta Napoleoni ci porta nel mondo complesso dei mercanti di uomini, spiegando come le vite umane vengono “valutate” in termini economici e come alcune scellerate politiche occidentali alimentino tanto il mercato dei riscatti quanto il traffico dei clandestini. Proprio il circolo vizioso tra economia ufficiale ed “economia canaglia”, che rischia di portare l’Europa alla rovina ma che arricchisce molti, sta producendo uno tsunami di migranti e un’escalation di incertezza che lascia spazio ai populismi, a fenomeni come la Brexit o l’ascesa di Trump negli Usa. L’Occidente riuscirà a sopravvivere al rovinoso fallimento della globalizzazione?
