Global Slavery Index Criticised

Quirk and Broome say that the Global Slavery Index is profoundly flawed methodologically

Joel Quirk and André Broome say that the Global Slavery Index is profoundly flawed methodologically, yet it remains widely and often uncritically cited.

They criticise the ‘Global Slavery Index’, which they describe as ‘the most accurate and comprehensive measure of the extent and risk of modern slavery’.

However, Quirk and Broome are of the view that the Index contains what they call ‘highly suspect statistics’, adding that the inaugural 2013 index had been repeatedly criticised for using unreliable, incomplete and inappropriate data.
