What obligations - if any - do states have under general international law to criminalize, prevent and punish slavery? To whom do they owe those obligations? How, if at all, have views on these issues changed in recent years, as a result of human rights litigation and the interest of the UN Security Council? And what are the remedies if and when states fail to discharge these obligations?
Join us for a discussion with Professor Jean Allain, the pre-eminent legal scholar on the international law of slavery, to find out.
Organized by the United Nations University Office at the United Nations (UNU-ONY)
