Jonathon King September 19, 2007 Modern Slavery Slavery is defined as a person who is forced to work against their will, with little or no pay for his or her efforts; while being continuously abused, threatened and treated inferiorly. It is an issue that extends far beyond any written history, for example, even during Homer’s ancient Greece, slavery was an established institution. When most people talk about slavery, they’re talking about it in history. However, there is such thing as modern slavery, and it exists in many developing countries today. Although Article four of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights states; “Slavery and the slave trade shall be prohibited in all their forms,” some Latin American nations such as Paraguay, Argentina, Bolivia, Brazil, Peru, and Uruguay are all guilty of practicing some form of slavery. In the early 1880’s the slave trade was banned in Africa, but it still goes on today.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
