5. Unlocking Slavery Crimes Lecture. The Convenors of the Essex Public International Law Lecture Series (Dr Meagan Wong and Dr Emily Jones) are hosting a lecture on Monday 1 November at 6pm GMT to be given by Professor Patricia Viseur Sellers, Special Advisor for Slavery Crimes to the Office of the Prosecutor of the International Criminal Court, entitled ‘Unlocking Slavery Crimes.’ Slavery and the slave trade, practiced for generations, were expressly outlawed by international treaties, covenants, and tribunal statutes during the twentieth century. Notwithstanding, today’s legal redress of slavery and the slave trade is mired in a conceptually myopic morass. Slavery and the slave trade remains captive to the structural deficiencies embedded in statutes and their jurisprudential misinterpretation. This lecture attempts to unlock the shackles of Slavery Crimes. Registration and more information here.
