PSCI 1101 short paper #2 September 16, 2007 Modern Slavery Both the United States Constitution and the constitutions of countries throughout the world prohibit slavery, denouncing it as a violation of our basic civil rights. Article 4 of the Universal Declaration of Human rights states, “No one shall be held in slavery or servitude; slavery and the slave trade shall be prohibited in all their forms…” (www.antislavery.org). However, the practice of slavery throughout the world continues to violate these intrinsic human rights, and researchers find that at least 12 million people are forced into labor in today’s world. After researching slavery in our world today, I would define slavery in a modern context as the dehumanizing violation of the human rights of individuals by forcing them into work and submission using the threat and implementation of mental and physical abuse. One example of modern slavery is human trafficking, “the movement of people through violence, deception, or coercion for the purpose of forced labor or servitude”
