50 million people worldwide in modern slavery: ILO

Published

on


In its latest report, the Geneva-based International Labor Organization (ILO) said that 50 million people were living in modern slavery in 2021.

According to the UN agency’s latest report titled ‘Global Estimates of Modern Slavery’, 28 million of these people were in forced labor and 22 million were trapped in forced marriages.

The number of people in modern slavery has increased significantly in the last five years: 10 million more people were in modern slavery in 2021 compared to global estimates from 2016.

Women and children remain disproportionately vulnerable, says the report.

Modern slavery occurs in almost every country in the world and crosses ethnic, cultural and religious lines. More than half (52 percent) of all forced labor and a quarter of all forced marriages can be found in upper-middle or high-income countries.

As for forced labor, the majority of cases (86 percent) are in the private sector.

According to the report, forced labor in sectors other than commercial sexual exploitation accounts for 63 per cent of all forced labour, while forced commercial sexual exploitation accounts for 23 per cent of all forced labour.

Nearly four in five of those in forced commercial sexual exploitation are women or girls.

Forced labor imposed by the State represents 14 per cent of people in a situation of forced labour.

Nearly one in eight of all people in forced labor are children (3.3 million). More than half of these are in commercial sexual exploitation.

The report says that roughly 22 million people were living in forced marriage on any given day in 2021, an increase of 6.6 million from 2016 global estimates.

“It is shocking that the situation of modern slavery is not improving. Nothing can justify the persistence of this fundamental abuse of human rights,” said ILO Director-General Guy Ryder.

Antonio Vitorino, IOM Director General, said: “This report underscores the urgency of ensuring that all migration is safe, orderly and regular. Reducing the vulnerability of migrants to forced labor and human trafficking depends first and foremost on national policy and legislation. frameworks that respect, protect and fulfill the human rights and fundamental freedoms of all migrants and potential migrants, at all stages of the migration process, regardless of their immigration status”.
