Global Estimates of Modern Slavery

From the International Labour Organization, this report, released in September, 2017 gives the latest estimate of the number of people enslaved worldwide.  As these estimate vary (the ILO and other estimates), it is worth knowing that there is NO central reporting protocol for Human Trafficking victims, cases, prosecutions, convictions; not in the U.S., nor anywhere else.  However, in the words of our consultant, John Vanek “these are the best estimate we have”.  The full report is available here.  10/7/17
