Chapter Summary

The High Contracting Parties shall give to one another every assistance with the object of securing the abolition of slavery and the slave trade. Article 6 reads "The signatory States engage to use their best endeavours to induce all other States to conform to and adopt the principles of this Protocol. This provision however seems to stray rather far from the notion of mutual assistance with its coercive overtones and its attempted reach over third States. Article 4 was ultimately accepted by the Drafting Committee, the Sub-Committee, the Sixth Committee, and the Assembly of the League of Nations as part of the drafting process of the 1925 Draft Convention.

Keywords: 1925 Draft Convention; mutual assistance; slave trade; slavery
