In Article 5, the Convention sought to reduce the damage caused by slavery where it still existed when it „prohibited the act of mutilation, branding or any other marking of a slave or person with the status of service, to indicate his status or for some other reason.“ The terms „human trafficking,“ „human trafficking“ and „modern slavery“ are used as generic terms to refer to both the sex trade and forced labour. The Protection of Victims of Human Trafficking Act 2000 (Pub. L. 106-386), as amended (TVPA), and the Protocol on the Prevention, Repression and Punishment of Trafficking in Human Beings, especially Women and Children, complementing the United Nations Convention Against Transnational Organized Crime (Palermo Protocol) describe this forced service with a number of different terms, including involuntary servitude, slavery or slavery-like practices. (2) The slave trade encompasses all acts involved in the arrest, acquisition or elimination of a person who intends to enslave it; any act related to the acquisition of a slave for the sale or exchange of a slave; any act of surrender by the sale or exchange of a slave acquired for sale or thought and, in general, any act of trade or transport to slaves. Forced prostitution and sexual slavery are considered contemporary manifestations of this historical crime and are found all over the world. Women are often trapped by deception or coercion with the promise of a better life and remain trapped in violence or debt. [18] Forced marriage can also be considered a form of slavery, especially if the bride does not have the right or opportunity to refuse marriage. This form of marriage can also result from the abduction of young girls and sold them as brides, a widespread phenomenon in China. [19] Once married and raped, girls are often kept secret until they have a child, at which point they are less likely to leave because they do not want to leave their child.

[19] The High Contracting Parties agreed to all mutual aid to ensure the abolition of slavery and the slave trade. We are committed to ensuring that there is no modern slavery or human trafficking in any part of our business, including our supply chains. All of our employees are subject to the company`s code of conduct, which requires them to adhere to the highest standards of ethics, integrity and compliance in all aspects of our business. For our supply chain, the company has introduced third-party behaviour standards. Standards of conduct define the company`s expectations that our suppliers respect ethical standards at all times and respect social and environmental responsibility for the good of the communities we serve and for the promotion of human rights, including human trafficking, slavery, labour, human rights, the fight against corruption and the fight against corruption and ethical behaviour in their commercial relationships. Forced labour can also be imposed by governments that „claim their own subjects and use them for minimum or even zero wages, and for different periods.“ [22] Forced labour can also be used simply to reduce the production costs of private and public industries (for example. B cocoa plantations), or may be a form of involuntary servitude in the private sector – sweatshops. [23] Bales describes this type of slavery as contractual slavery, where „contracts are offered that guarantee employment, perhaps in a workshop or factory, but when workers are brought to their workplace, they discover that they have instead been enslaved… it is a way of making slavery legitimate and necessary. [24] Usually, the freedoms of slavery were also found before the 19th century under the term „freedom of oppression and tyranny.“ Since slavery is a condition of the complete and total submission from one person to another, often with the exercise of violence or the power of the owner over the submissive, the phrase “
