Chapter Summary

This chapter discusses 13 articles of the 1956 Draft Supplementary Convention on Slavery and Servitude, and contains many sections, the first one being the Preamble. This is followed by separate sections dealing with the institutions and practices similar to slavery, slave trade, and co-operation between states parties and communication of information. The last section deals with the final clauses. The act of enslaving another person or of inducing another person to give himself or a person dependent upon such other person into slavery or any other form of servitude, or of attempting these acts, or being accessory thereto, or being a party to a conspiracy to accomplish any such acts, shall be a criminal offence under the laws of the States Parties to this Convention and persons convicted thereof shall be liable to punishment.
