About the Global Modern Slavery Directory

Modern slavery is a global issue that requires a coordinated global response. This is the case both for the work to eradicate it in the long term, and in the immediate, to help individual survivors find freedom right now. The non-governmental organization (NGOs), multilateral institutions, government stakeholders, and law enforcement agencies working to combat modern slavery must be to find each other and to connect across borders. With this goal in mind, Polaris has created the Global Modern Slavery Directory (GMSD), an interactive, publicly searchable map and database of organizations and agencies across the globe that address the issue of modern slavery and human trafficking. The GMSD also provides a visualization of the global safety net so that stakeholders and researchers can observe where there are gaps in services for vulnerable populations and connect to respond accordingly.

The GMSD includes organizations that address all types of human trafficking, including sex trafficking, forced labor and debt bondage, forced marriage and child marriage, child trafficking, child pornography, organ trafficking, trafficking within international adoption, and international marriage brokering mechanisms (“bride trafficking”).

Organizations include direct service providers, government agencies, law enforcement agencies, as well as groups that carry out awareness, advocacy and prevention efforts, or organizations that may assist victims of trafficking while addressing related issues, such as labor exploitation, child protection, or domestic violence.

The Global Modern Slavery Directory is designed to be a useful tool for all stakeholders in the global anti-trafficking field: service providers, potential victims, survivors, community members, researchers, students, and others looking to identify or connect with resources.
