What You Need To Know About Modern Slavery And Human Trafficking
Former UK PM Theresa May launched the Global Commission on Modern Slavery and Human Trafficking in October 2023, as the UNODC’s latest report uncovered distressing trends. The pandemic led to an 11% decline in detected victims, with a staggering 24% drop in sexual exploitation cases. With inadequate responses, victims are left to rely on self-rescue efforts. Furthermore, convictions plummeted by 27% in 2020, perpetuating a sense of impunity. The Commission and grassroots organisations are vital in supporting victims and striving towards the UN’s ambitious goal of ending modern slavery by 2030.
