Chapter Summary

The provisions regarding the entry into force of the 1926 Slavery Convention were originally conceived to allow for ratification and accession, though Viscount Cecil of Chelwood, in introducing the 1925 British Draft Protocol to the Assembly of the League of Nations noted that it was "merely the ordinary ratification clause". Article 12 of the 1926 Slavery Convention was drafted by the Sub-Committee of the Sixth Committee of the Assembly of the League of Nations which did not take the advice of the Legal Section of the League with regard to the coming into force of the Convention or with regard to the coming into force for Parties once their consent had been given with regard to accepting the provisions of the Convention.
