(still) Missing in Action: The International Crime of the Slave Trade

A continuation of the Promise Institute for Human Rights’ High-Level Speaker Series on Women, Gender and the Law. Patricia Viseur Sellers spoke on the missing international crime of the slave trade, incorporating jurisprudence from the Yugoslavia tribunal and International Criminal Court as well as evidence of the Yazidi and the Libyan situation of Slave Markets. With a particular focus on gender, she examined how this trajectory ties into current issues of reparations for slavery and colonialism.
