There are many reasons people may become involved in modern slavery. Poverty is often a major factor that makes people vulnerable to this type of exploitation. Experiencing poverty and exclusion can cause people to take risks as they feel desperate and lacking in options. Some people may be victims of this type of exploitation because of coercion or expectation from family or people around them, for example in cases of child marriage and descent-based slavery. Some people may be more vulnerable to being tricked or trapped due to their health or personal circumstances.
