• Area: 9,938,000 sq km (3,837,083 sq mi). Covers approximately 2% of the Earth’s surface, and about 6.8% of the land area. 6th largest continent (in term of area)
  • Population: 738,200,000 people (3rd largest)
  • Economic: Europe is currently the richest region in the world with GDP of $19.920 trillion (32% of the world). 
  • Number of countries: 50. Below is a list f countries in alphabetical order:

(BT + MH) Eastern Europe, especially the former Soviet Union Region, and central Russia, is the recruiting zone for sex slaves. Key destination for this market are large Northern and Western European cities. Sex slave is definitely not a “Global Good”. However, the industry (yes it is an industry!) has the global-scale profit that usually concentrate into the hands of many international owners (or pimps!). Approximately 80% of modern day slaves is gender female, and about half is children. Young women from less developed European countries, especially rural sides are cheated into the industry by promise of a secured job in more affluent European cities. Almost all of them experience physical abused, and are guarded from escaping. The latest number indicated that approximately 27 millions people from Eastern European countries are held as modern slaves.

Another prominent issue in the region is directly related to the practice of mining industry. Local labors are exploited. On top of that, environmental degradation is also resulted from deregulated policies on mining practices and facilities.


Northern Europe (S.K) is the Northern region of Europe. Northern Europe typically refers to the seven countries in the northern part of the European subcontinent.

Northern Europe continues to battle against ice and snow, which have disrupting road, rail, and air traffic.

Historically, when Europe was dominated by the Mediterranean region, everything not near this sea was termed Northern Europe, including Germany, the small countries and Austria.

“The Baltic Sea has been the key to bringing northern Europeans together since mankind first learned to build ships and navigate upon the sea.” Evidence of early travels throughout the sea can be seen by the various trade items found throughout the region, or in other areas of Europe. Hoards of precious metals such as silver, gold, and iron in the form if ingots, coins, tools and ornamental objects have been found all over the Baltic region.

(ZH) Western Europe: European Union workers have seen their incomes rise while the workweek has plummeted to as little as 35 hours. Holidays have increased to as many as 32 days a year. But through the 1990s, contrary pressures were building as big corporations increasingly adopted the new philosophy of globalization basing production in countries where the jobs can be done more cheaply. The “crunch point” for Europe has been the arrival in May in the EU of 10 new members, mainly from Eastern and Central Europe, where labor costs are only a fraction of Western levels. Corporations are now able to move east to Poland, Hungary, or the Czech Republic while staying inside the “home” EU market”. In addition, there is a strong wave of immigration from Eastern European countries into large Western European metropolitan areas for economic opportunities.  Hence, that leads to a rising anti-immigration sentiment, as the recession continues across the continent.

Southern Europe (De’Lesha Jackson and Trevor Hinton)

In Southern Europe it seems as though most of their partners are Italy and Germany whether it is an export or import. The most common industry that is made or worth something in the south are textiles and many different kinds of metals. Italy and other southern countries in Europe aren’t adjusting to change well as of recently because they aren’t competing with competition so instead they are merging. The public debt is the problem but economic growth is the root. The economy is not growing. Most of their stocks has subsided causing governments to cut back on spending. Germany’s economic struggle was caused by lower household consumption and the fact that they were exporting more than they were importing so it was building up.
