Chapter Summary

The States signatories of the present 1954 British Draft Convention, considering that article 4 of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights proclaims as one of the aims of the United Nations that no one shall be held in slavery or servitude. The contracting parties undertake to co-operate with each other to give effect to the forgoing provisions, and to communicate to each other through the Secretary-General of the United Nations copies of any laws and regulations enacted to implement the provisions of this Convention. This Convention shall enter into force on the date on which two States have become parties thereto and thereafter shall enter into force in respect to each State and territory on the date of deposit of the instrument of ratification or accession of that State or notification of extension to that territory.
