This sub-indicator assesses the extent to which adult citizens are free from servitude and other kinds of forced labour. Involuntary servitude occurs when an adult is unable to quit a job they desire to leave, not by reason of economic necessity but rather by reason of employer’s coercion. This includes labour camps but not work or service which forms part of normal civic obligations such as conscription or employment in command economies.
