According to the International Labour Organization, an estimated 40.3 million people around the world were living in conditions of modern slavery as recently as 2016. Lawmakers in the United States, Hong Kong, and elsewhere are promoting legislation to prevent, identify, and penalize acts of forced labor, smuggling, and other types of human trafficking and to compensate victims. Multinationals, civil society organizations, and concerned individuals are increasing their efforts to raise awareness. But much remains to be done.
