A continuing study by Katarina Schwarz and Jean Allain.
To assess the extent to which slavery and related forms of human exploitation have been prohibited in domestic law, the Antislavery in Domestic Legislation Project compiles the constitutional, criminal, and labour legislation of all 193 UN Member States, drawing provisions dealing with the following forms of exploitation from these texts: slavery and the slave trade, servitude, institutions and practices similar to slavery, forced or compulsory labour, and trafficking in persons.
From over 700 domestic statutes, more than four thousand individual provisions have been extracted and analysed to establish the extent to which each and every State has prohibited these practices through domestic legislation.
Within the Antislavery Legislation Database, these provisions have been collated with a global mapping of States’ commitments to relevant international instruments, to assist States in meeting their international obligations with regard to slavery and related forms of exploitation. Core international obligations to prohibit, and the definitions of these practices, are drawn from five core international instruments: the 1926 Slavery Convention; the 1930 Forced Labour Convention; the 1956 Supplementary Convention on the Abolition of Slavery; the Slave Trade and Institutions and Practices Similar to Slavery; the 1966 International Covenant on Civil and Political Rights; the 2000 Protocol to Prevent, Suppress and Punish Trafficking in Persons Especially Women and Children, supplementing the United Nations Convention against Transnational Organised Crime.
Users can either navigate the database by exploring the map or by navigating through the list of countries (see below).
