Published 19 July, 2018, the Global Slavery Index covers 167 countries, presenting country level data on prevalence, vulnerability and governmental responses to Modern Slavery. Each country report is listed alphabetically, where each government’s response data is used to assess responses since 2014.
The 2018 report focuses on the top 12 global economies, providing information on the types of modern slavery and vulnerability factors affecting each of these countries, as well as the actions of the respective governments.
Each country study includes data on the greatest value-imports at risk of being produced through forced labour as well as information on the statements being produced under the UK Modern Slavery Act.
The studies conclude with a series of recommendations.
