You can’t solve a problem if you can’t measure it. Knowing how and where modern slavery occurs is key to eradicating it. By compiling data about slavery’s prevalence and geographical variation, the Global Slavery Index provides an important starting point for governments, firms, NGOs, faith communities and individuals to act.
The Global Slavery Index presents a thoroughly researched, detailed picture of modern slavery as it exists across industries and countries today. It also indicates the actions governments are taking to combat modern slavery and the risks that populations face around the world.
Walk Free uses cutting-edge prevalence estimation techniques including nationally-representative surveys in partnership with Gallup, risk-model extrapolation and multiple systems estimation to measure modern slavery globally. We also assess government responses to this issue and vulnerability structures that impact populations around the world.
