Voices: Narratives by Survivors of Modern Slavery

This Rights Lab resource is the world's largest archive of modern slavery survivor narratives. Across more than a million words spoken or written by survivors of modern slavery, we see why slavery persists in particular hotspots around the world, can analyse patterns to understand trafficking routes, identify vulnerabilities and the challenges survivors face in liberation, and discover new antislavery solutions.
