Slavery and trafficking occurs in 90% of recent wars and conflicts, new research shows
Research by the University of Nottingham’s Rights Lab has identified that slavery and human trafficking are present in 90 percent of modern wars. Modern slavery experts Professor Kevin Bales, Angharad Smith and Dr Monti Narayan Datta spent four years building the now open-access online database, recording every case and type of slavery across 171 wars and conflicts fought between 1989 and 2016. It is the first systematic and large-scale inquiry into various types of enslavement within modern armed conflicts.
