This 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, and gathered over more than 20 years, 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. Now as in the 19th century, the slave narrative is at the centre of abolitionism: these narratives offer the chance to systematically design new antislavery strategies based on the experiences, ideas and solutions of enslaved people themselves.
