Recent estimates suggest that there are 21 million people who are victims of human trafficking, forced labor, and slavery around the world. Of those 21 million, private individuals or enterprises exploit 19 million victims; the other 2 million are exploited by the state and rebel groups. These statistics depict the magnitude of human trafficking occurring in our world today, and show that in most instances the perpetrators are not governments, but rather outside market forces.
