Abstract:Knowledge about religion and spirituality is essential in dealing with migrants of West African descent in the Netherlands who may be victims of human trafficking. This is the main conclusion of a study conducted by the Centre against Child and Human Trafficking (CKM), the African Studies Centre Leiden, and the University of Humanistic Studies, and with the support of the Salvation Army Amsterdam. The research report 'A Question of Faith' explores the role and meaning of religion and the religious experience in the lives of West African migrants in the Netherlands. A culture-sensitive approach in which knowledge about religion and spirituality is included is a primary condition for communication with this target group. This is expected to contribute to strengthening trust between the target group and the investigating and assistance services.
