Chapter Summary

This front matter section of this book titled The Slavery Conventions contains the table of contents, the preface and the acknowledgements. Establishing the drafting history of the 1926 and 1956 Slavery Conventions, the book sets out the legal parameters of slavery and provides insights into the legal obligations undertaken by States as they were understood at the time of negotiation. With limited and conflicting case-law on the issue, the compiling of the Travaux Préparatoires of the 1926 League of Nations and the 1956 United Nations conventions become essential in seeking to holding States or individuals responsible for violations of international law touching on slavery.

Keywords: 1926 League of Nations convention; 1956 United Nations convention; Slavery Conventions
