10 Countries Most Afflicted By Modern Slavery

The ten countries with the most people in modern slavery (victims of human trafficking). Subscribe to TDC: https://www.youtube.com/TheDailyConversation/ The study: https://www.globalslaveryindex.org/findings/ Get involved: http://www.freetheslaves.net/ Full interview with Kevin Bales: http://n.pr/1S54uR7 Video researched, written, narrated, and directed by Bryce Plank Visualization and editing by Robin West Music: "Enter the Maze" by Kevin MacLeod http://incompetech.com/ "Phife for Life" by Otis McDonald Script: Slavery used to look like this, then it evolved into this, and today it looks like this. In fact, there are an estimated 45.8 million people living in modern slavery across 167 different countries. They fall into three general categories: children held in the commercial sex trade; adults held in the commercial sex trade; and any other laborer made to work through force, fraud, or coercion. The trafficking victim often looks like anybody else at work in a mine, on a farm, in a factory. Many are lured by promises of a steady job in another country, only to have their passports confiscated when they arrive. However, many slaves work in their native countries or even the cities where they were born. According to The Global Slavery Index, these ten countries are home to the most modern slaves. They each suffer from income inequality, discrimination and classism, and entrenched corruption. Number ten, Indonesia, produces about 35% of the world’s palm oil. The many small palm plantations present an immense challenge to inspectors trying to crack down on child labor. The country’s many islands are also home to tens of thousands of enslaved fisherman trafficked from Myanmar, Laos, Thailand, and Cambodia. Number nine is the Democratic Republic of Congo. 20,000 of the DRC’s more than 870,000 slaves live in one of the most hellish landscapes on the planet, a vast ore mine in the east of the country. The terrorist group Boko Haram gets overshadowed by ISIS, although it kills more people. When it comes to enslavement, one of its tactics is to give Nigerian entrepreneurs loans and then force them to join their group if they fail to repay fast enough. Seventh is Russia. 55% of the slaves there work in construction. Foreigners are lured mainly from nearby Azerbaijan, the “stans,” Ukraine, and North Korea—thanks to this border on the far eastern edge of Russia. The North Korean government is the world’s largest single slaveholder. Not only does it force more than one million of its people to toil in labor camps and other similarly hopeless situations, but it actually loans out some people to work in neighboring China and Russia, then pockets most of their wages. This exploitation generates about $2.3B each year for the Kim Jong-un regime. The fifth most enslaved country, Uzbekistan, is the world’s sixth largest producer of cotton. It has benefited from forced labor, as the government puts more than 1 million people to work using threats of debt bondage, heavy fines, asset confiscation, and police intimidation. Slave recruiters in Bangladesh promise poor families that their boys will be given a job, only to be enslaved on a faraway island and beaten to clean fish for up to 24 hours straight. Often, these fish are exported as cat food for our pets. Sometimes, the boys meet a gruesome death when they are eaten by tigers while searching for firewood. Third is Pakistan, which has suffered through decades of conflict, terrorism, and displacement—especially along its northwestern border with Afghanistan. Its provinces have not raised the minimum age of marriage, which has allowed the widespread problem of forced and child weddings to continue. Over 250 million Chinese have migrated within the country to find better opportunities, creating the ideal conditions for human trafficking. Each year, 58 million children are ‘left behind’ as their parents search of work in the China’s many booming cities. Every year, up to 70,000 children fall into forced begging, illegal adoption, and sex slavery. And number one is India, which has - by far - the most victims of modern slavery. While economic growth has greatly reduced the percentage of its citizens living in poverty, the country’s sheer size still results in more than 270 million Indians living on less than $2/day. It’s unsurprising that inter-generational bonded labor, forced child labor, commercial sexual exploitation, forced begging, forced recruitment into nonstate armed groups, and forced marriage all exist in India. The government has already created many of the laws necessary to fight the epidemic, but the challenge is enforcing those laws and tracking improvements and areas of continued need.

Someone show this to black Americans and their pathetic media. According to them, the only slavery that was ever a "real" problem was slavery in the states.
Barba papa (4 days ago)
as of 2019, America is the only country in the world that legalizes slavery. read your constitution and don't confuse slavery with poverty. those you are talking about can leave anytime they want. in American prisons, they can't, and they are chained and forced to work for 23 cents an hour.

This is about illegal slavery, but legal slavery exist too. Multinationals moved their businesess to low income countries for a reason, low wages and less regulation. They let people work for very low wages and for long hours, and in all those hours they earn just enough to eat. Technically those people ar no slaves, but they don't really have an option to quit. They work hard to just eat, while the company earns a lot of money from those products.

Yes. It is true. India is really in modern day slavery. There is no labour enforcement. No minmal wages. I was thinking of india when you were reading name of countries. I do not say india is bad. But really i find it bad about the situation of poor people. Politician and corparate are sucking the nations wealth( tax and nafural natural resources ) from middle class and poor people. poltician are in favour of corporate people. Agriculture is source of income of poor but that too is taken by big companies by branding agriculture produce from company farm. Small grocerrary will soon be over taken by big company owned brands like RELIANCE FRESH, tata's "MORE" super market. Reliance electronics, reliance trends. I think after sometime even the public toilets in street will be taken by big companies. Big corporates are trying to capturre every business.

Damremont18 (25 days ago)
Raage Abdi - North Africans working in Italy are exploited labour. They are not slave labour. Big difference. These Libyans may not receive a wage they like, but their employer hasn't seized their passports, he isn't forcing them to work, and they can leave anytime they want. They choose to stay because a crap job is better than no job. Huge difference between what is happening in sub Saharan Africa and Italy.

National Patriot Well... No. Only a small part of it is on European soil and the Turkish language is not part of the Indo-European language family. Also there is a significant culture divide. I mean - you can definitely make the case that Turkey is quite western, shares a common history and is greatly developed. There is room for debate. However, in my personal opinion, I would not count Turkey as part of Europe. Anymore may feel free to disaggree however.

They haven't even tried to clean up their own mess and simply blame poor African and Asian people.

There are western companies legally selling '' workers '' to other western companies , mostly to construction companies that are working in middle east . They collect these people from india and pakistan , sell them in emirates and saudi . Many of these '' workers '' suicide by throwing themselves under super expensive cars which are passing through the highways they are working on the construction of so that their families back home could get kind of a compensation money .

About work labor in Indonesia,You can't just compare stuff here and the western world duh! I got what your point but govermant employe as we call( pns) only got around 3-5 million rupiah(230-380$) a month as the palm oil labor get 2.4-3.8 million rupiah (200-300$) a month and stuff in Indonesia actually really cheap you can buy a full meal with just a dollar and more advance for just 2 dollar,usual clothing and shoes only cost 5 dollar each and actually the worker get free rice supply from their employer every month. I know what your point about the video but you really should looking from the native people perspective the work is suck!sure but it's still better than working at construction site or as a waitres, it suck that I have to defend these palm oil industry that have kill wild live habitat and literally burn million km of forest just for palm oil plantation but they did give job to people here even if it's and underpaid job. It's sad it is really sad but sometime people don't have any better option than working as a palm oil labor PS. I'm not a palm oil labor or work at these industry i work at my family restaurant and actually have a lot of palm oil worker customer

@Cereal Killer Wikipedia: "However, and especially under slavery in broader senses of the word, slaves may have some rights and protections according to laws or customs." Even if they don't like their job, they still do it, to be well fed and protected by their owner. How different is this from modern day jobs? You are dependent on your boss and work 8 hours a day to pay your bills. In army you have to live by the schedule the system forces onto you. In my country, if you have brother or sister, and are healthy enough, you have to go to army at least for an year. You can't refuse. Is it not like slavery for a year? In some European countries doctors do surgeries and give consultations for free, and they don't get refund from the government. Is not that also slavery? Slavery does not have simple definition. Slavery varies from perspectives of different people.
