This study investigates the evolution of research concerning modern slavery, elucidating its diverse manifestations encompassing human trafficking, debt bondage, forced marriages, and exploitation across industries. The analysis underscores a deficiency in comprehensive synthesis and actionable insights within existing literature. Focused on delineating actionable pathways, this research endeavors to rectify this gap by offering specific recommendations to combat modern slavery effectively. By identifying patterns and lacunae in existing research, this study emphasizes the urgent need for comprehensive interventions to safeguard the rights of the vulnerable and mitigate this pervasive global issue.
