Connecting Victims and Survivors to Services Around the World: Global Modern Slavery Directory

Service providers and other stakeholders working with survivors face the problem of not knowing what resources are available to them in their country or in the home country of the survivors with whom they are working. Victims and survivors seeking services also do not have an easy and centralized resource where they can identify service providers that are close to them and provide the specific services they are searching for.

Due to the fragmented nature of the anti-trafficking field, key stakeholders, who are interested in creating or funding anti-trafficking programs are finding it hard to know what the specific gaps and needs are in a specific region or sector, often leading to the duplication of efforts. A tool is needed in order to help these stakeholders determine where and how to invest in targeted strategies and tactics to eradicate human trafficking in communities, slavery-proof communities for the future, and prevent the root causes of trafficking.

The anti-trafficking field needs comprehensive real-time information and insights in order to fully understand the anti-trafficking service provider and population landscape in a particular city, country, or region.


The purpose of the Global Modern Slavery Directory is to create a central, publicly accessible resource so that anyone, in any country, may easily access information about the global anti-trafficking field. Service providers, government agencies, task forces, as well as law enforcement agencies make up the GMSD.

The GMSD is not just a website but a functional application built around data. This data has already proven to be in demand for different stakeholders and constituencies. By building a more functional application around valuable data, the data then not only becomes more accessible but its value is magnified.

The GMSD is also being used by the National Human Trafficking Hotline to coordinate international case response through the creation of emergency protocols for countries and regions.

By highlighting the tool and the use it has for not only services providers but as well as other stakeholders doing research, the GMSD is able to help bring about change to the anti-trafficking field.
