Chapter Summary

Any person shall be guilty of a criminal offence and liable to punishment who attempts, or is an accessory to an attempt, or takes part in a conspiracy, to enslave another person or to induce another person to give himself, or a person dependent upon his, into slavery or any other form of servitude. In April 1954, the Economic and Social Council invited States and the International Labour Organisation to submit comments on the British Draft Convention to the Secretary-General and to establish a ten-Member strong Committee on the Drafting of a Supplementary Convention on Slavery and Servitude. In April 1956, the Economic and Social Council decided that "a conference of plenipotentiaries should be convened in order to complete the drafting of the Supplementary Convention on the Abolition of Slavery, the Slave Trade and Institutions and Practices similar to Slavery".
