According to estimates, near on 46 million people worldwide are slaves. Within that number are women forced into prostitution or girls forced to marry older men; agricultural, domestic and factory workers; children in sweatshops, but also those in forced labour or bonded labour.

Although slavery is illegal on a global scale, it is also present on a global scale, and part of a giant, illicit, international industry.

Ways of fighting human trafficking were discussed at a conference and workshops for law enforcers organised at the British embassy in Warsaw and the Police Training Centre in Legionowo.
