What is Modern Slavery?
Human Rights abuses are prevalent globally and are not isolated to third-world countries. Modern Slavery is an umbrella term that encapsulates slavery, servitude and forced or compulsory labor, human trafficking, or situations of exploitation that a person cannot refuse or leave because of threats, violence, coercion, deception, and/or abuse of power. The International Labour Organization (ILO) estimates that over 40.3 million people are in some form of Modern Slavery. These abuses can be pronounced like child labor, forced labor, and even unsafe work environments. Others, like discrimination, unfair wages, and privacy rights abuses, including holding immigration documentation, are less obvious. Regardless, all of these pose a threat to the protection of Human Rights and are common practices in many areas of the world.
