The Convention on the Abolition of Slavery, the Slave Trade and Institutions and Practices Similar to Slavery, supplementary to the Slavery Convention, requires that the act of enslaving another person or of inducing another person to give himself or herself or a person dependent on him or her into slavery be a criminal offence under each state party's national law1. The Supplementary Slavery Convention expressly reproduces the definition in the Slavery Convention to define 'slavery' as 'the status or condition of a person over whom any or all of the powers attaching to the right of ownership are exercised'2.
