Launched on the 31st May, the 2016 Global Slavery Index has estimated that there are 45.8 million people enslaved in the world today. Improving their rights and eradicating slavery is both wise and urgent for all leaders of countries and organisations.
The Index provides a map, country by country, of the estimated prevalence of modern slavery, together with information about the steps each government has taken to respond to this issue. This information allows an objective comparison and assessment of both the problem and adequacy of the response in 167 countries.

Together, we can #endslavery in our lifetime.
