15. Moldova – 0.936%

Moldova is one of the poorest countries in Europe, and many of its 3.56 million citizens live below the poverty line. In 2014, an estimated 33,300 people were enslaved in Moldova – many in forced labor in construction and agriculture work. Others were subjected to sex trafficking and forced marriage across Eastern Europe and the Middle East. The independent region of Transnistria in Eastern Moldova is particularly problematic. It serves as a hub for human trafficking.
