Anti-Slavery International

Anti-Slavery International, founded in 1839, is committed to eliminating all forms of slavery throughout the world. Slavery, servitude, and forced labor deny basic dignity and fundamental human rights. Anti-Slavery International works to end these abuses by campaigning for slavery's eradication, exposing current cases, supporting the initiatives of local organizations to release people, and pressing for more effective implementation of international laws against slavery.

We are supporting Anti-Slavery International in its efforts to use the law to challenge descent-based slavery in Niger. Building on a recent success in which Niger was found to have failed in its obligation to protect its citizens from slavery, Anti-Slavery International will seek to use domestic anti-slavery legislation and international human rights law to protect individuals, and to ensure that those affected by slavery are able to seek redress through the courts for the violations they have suffered.
