This is based on a random-sample, nationallyrepresentative survey undertaken in 2015, that sought to identify instances of both forced marriage and forced labour within the general population (survey conducted in Khmer language).

Walk Free survey results suggest some 55,800 people are victims of forced marriage in Cambodia (22 percent of the estimated 256,800 people in modern slavery in Cambodia).

Poor wages, poor health and safety conditions, excessive noise, poor air quality, unsanitary environments and employer abuse are common.

In 2011, the government placed a moratorium on sending maids to Malaysia amid reports of serious abuse; however, workers continue to travel there through informal channels.The presence of the sex tourism industry has led to the sexual exploitation of street children.The majority of street children who have been identified as victims of this abuse are boys, with many citing foreign nationals as the perpetrators.In 2014, UNICEF reported 18 percent of Cambodian women marry under the age of 18.While this may increase the risk of girls being forced to marry, and girls being forced to marry if they fall pregnant through rape, there is insufficient data to suggest this is widespread.
