WHAT IS MODERN SLAVERY?

This is a question that even
the United Nations has difficulty
answering after years of effort.
One definition of slavery is that
formulated by the 1926 Slavery Convention,
which stated: “Slavery is the
status or condition of a person
over whom any or all of the powers
attaching to the right of ownership
are exercised.” Still, the term is
open to interpretation. According to
journalist Barbara Crossette,
“slavery is a label applied to low-wage
workers in the garment and sportswear
industries abroad and sweatshops in American cities.
It is invoked to condemn the sex industry and prison labor.”
