Chapter Summary

The slave trade consists in the capture or purchase of persons with the object of selling or bartering them as slaves. Slavery is a status in which one person exercises a right of property over another. The signatory States, recognising the grave evils that may result from the employment of forced labour, except for essential public services, engage that, where it is necessary for special reasons to admit the employment of forced labour, they will take all necessary precautions, particularly where the labourers belong to the less advanced races, to prevent conditions analogous to these of slavery from resulting from such employment. The 1925 British Draft Protocol, which shall remain open for signature by all States, shall be ratified. The ratification shall be deposited with the Secretary-General of the League of Nations.
