Nigerian migration to Europe has attracted considerable attention both from governments and in the media. This is partly because some elements of this migration flow are related to trafficking in persons and other criminal activities, but also because Nigerians have become prominent among sub-Saharan African asylum seekers in Europe. There are several hundreds of thousands of Nigerians throughout Europe, half of whom live in the United Kingdom. Italy is host to the second-largest group of Nigerians and is the most important destination for trafficking in persons from Nigeria. Although existing research and documentation on Nigerians in Europe concentrate on prostitution, trafficking and criminal activities, the great majority of Nigerian immigrants in Europe who lead their lives without any contacts with such activities are ignored.
