Around 45.8 million people currently living around the globe - men, women or children - are victim of slavery according to the latest publication of the Walk Free Foundation. Examples of slavery are human trafficking (for the purpose of matters such as forced labor and sexual exploitation) but also forced marriage is regarded a form of slavery. The 2016 Global Slavery Index shows that there are 45.8 million victims trapped in slavery, a figure that is considerably higher than earlier assumptions. Alarmingly, Indonesia is among the top ten nations with the highest number of "modern slaves".
