The present study is the result of a collective work. Its purpose was to find an answer to a certain number of questions concerning the immigration of sub-Saharan African workers in France. To answer correctly the first question: what are clandestine immigration and illegal recruitment of manpower? it became necessary to put the question another way so as to enable us to find an explanation for the problems raised. In view of the widespread occurrence of illicit entry, the question then becomes: what part does clandestine status play? The exploitation of sub-Saharan African workers? To have a better understanding of this, it was necessary to analyse the phenomenon of migration from several points of view. The concrete problems faced by African workers were tackled in a second chapter, starting with an examination of the routes taken by sub-Saharan African workers to get to France. Chapter 3 gives an analysis of the objective and subjective working conditions as well as of the living conditions. Finally, in the fourth and last chapter entitled stocks and flows, made a general study of the financial implications of migration.
