Chapter Summary

The United Nations Economic and Social Council requested the Secretary-General to consult with States as to the desirability of a supplementary convention on slavery and to its possible content. In April 1954, the United Kingdom using as its basis the recommendations of the 1950-51 Ad Hoc Committee on Slavery, put forward a draft convention which included a compromissory clause at Article 8. The compromissory clause of Article 10 of the 1956 Supplementary Convention requires that the International Court of Justice be seized of the matter, but only if the parties can not settle their difference by recourse to negotiation, or failing that, that other means of dispute settlement had not been agreed to by the parties.
