SLAVERY PAST, PRESENT & FUTURE: 4th Global Meeting

June 17 @ 8:00 am - June 19 @ 5:00 pm

Controversial and contested estimates indicate that up to 40 million people worldwide are enslaved today.   This modern re-emergence of slavery into public view, following legal abolition of the trans-Atlantic slave trade over two hundred years ago, is said to be linked to the deepening interconnectedness of countries in the global economy, overpopulation, and the economic and other vulnerabilities of individual victims and communities.

The varieties of contemporary forms of exploitation appear to be endless. This interdisciplinary conference will facilitate a multidisciplinary exploration of slavery in all its dimensions.
