Products of Slavery: a Supply Chains data visualization project to make you know where slavery and forced labor are with the products you consume
Companies have a unique ability to address forced and child labour within their supply chains. Consumers also have a vital role to play in calling for companies’ action to end forced labour.
Visitors to the Products of Slavery website can explore maps, charts and other interactive displays about forced labour and child labour used to make 122 different products in 58 countries. The data visualisation reveals vital information about the origins of these products, whose journey to the supermarket shelves is usually so well concealed in today’s globalised economy.
The primary source of data in this Products of Slavery visualisation comes from the U.S. Government, specifically a report produced by the Department of Labor’s Bureau of International Labour Affairs (ILAB) in 2009 called “List of Goods Produced by Child Labour or Forced Labour – Report Required by the Trafficking Victims Protection Reauthorization Acts of 2005 and 2008”.
