There are an estimated 50 million people worldwide living in modern slavery.
These individuals are subjected to various forms of exploitation, from forced labour and commercial sexual exploitation to forced marriages and human trafficking. In each case, these people were denied the freedom to choose how to work and live their lives.
Given such widespread, systemic human impact, what would it take to bring this issue to an end?
Walk Free continued to take on this challenge in 2023, with the release of their fifth edition of the Global Slavery Index (GSI) – a comprehensive analysis of modern slavery, encompassing over 25,000 data points across 160 countries. Operating closely with Walk Free and the Minderoo Foundation, we worked to support in releasing the 2023 GSI across several fronts.
