Europe & Human Trafficking

More than 45.8 million people are in some form of modern slavery in 167 countries throughout the world.

Each line represents the flow of trafficking, from the origin country to the destination country.

Within Europe, there are currently 2,075,500 victims living in modern slavery due to trafficking.
Countries like Luxembourg, Norway, Finland, Sweden, and Denmark have higher GDP's than most countries in Europe, and also exhibit very low numbers for trafficking victims. The opposite is true of countries with lower GDP's; they are prone to many more trafficking victims due to poverty levels. This can primarily be seen throughout Eastern Europe, where trafficking has increased tremendously over the past couple of decades, following the collapse of the Soviet Union.
