Global slavery mapped | News |

 Source: The Guardian

Modern day slavery directly affects 29 million people in the world today - that's according to a new index which has sought to look at this empirically by measuring the prevalence of slavery by population, child marriage and human trafficking on a country by country basis. You can see their results in this interactive map.

Select a specific region from the list in the top right-hand corner or click on a country to find out the scale of its slavery. Alternatively, click on 'plot' at the bottom of the screen to compare each country in a graph.
