Where Do the World's 30,000,000 Slaves Live?

This map shows where the world’s 30 million slaves live. There are 60,000 in the U.S.

 



We think of slavery as a practice of the past, an image from Roman colonies or 18th-century American plantations, but the practice of enslaving human beings as property still exists. There are 29.8 million people living as slaves right now, according to a comprehensive new report  issued by the Australia-based Walk Free Foundation.
