Abstract: The article is based on 48 Belgian judicial files (27 Nigerian and 21 Moroccan ones), that concerned the practices that created victims of human trafficking from Nigeria and Morocco in Belgium and some neighbouring countries. We discover that the most efficient criminal entrepreneurs are creative and very flexible. They also dare to diversify and to internationalise. But in the African case, most of the time they do not look for coverage of their practices through legal firms as Eastern European criminals do. In the African case, one is faced with a business that is constantly reproducing itself through new learning processes, but without a well conceptualised longer term vision.
