Abstract

This study investigates the historical role of the League of Nations and the International Labour Organisation (ILO), in the abolition of slavery and protection of associated human rights. Its objective is to critically analyse modern forms of slavery, and investigate the world’s considerable efforts for the abolition of slavery. In previous decades, slavery was clear, which led to complex and longstanding problems. But now in the modern era, it appears in various forms that are difficult to be noticed. In fact, understanding slavery is a complex and subjective exercise, open to interpretation and political manipulations. It originates from slavery’s original concept, that human beings are owned as property. The managerial reactions to international debates have been clear, in which descriptions of slavery are fractured, and therefore difficult for the public to process and act. Consequently, public workers, who are not taught their rights, are always enslaved.
