The Virgin and the Gypsy BY Arberl 23 Bales, Kevin, and Peter T. Robbins. “”no One Shall be Held in Slavery Or Servitude”: A Critical Analysis of International Slavery Agreements and Concepts of Slavery. ” Human Rights Review 2. 2 (2001): 18-45. ProQuest. Web. 19 Apr. 2013 Slavery has always existed but the form and the definitions have made it change. There have been many controversial arguments on defining what slavery is and who should be punished. There are arguments on what practices should be considered as slavery and how should they be penalized.

It would be helpful to advance an international ompromise on what practices constitute slavery. According to “”no One Shall be Held in Slavery Or Servitude”: A Critical Analysis of International Slavery Agreements and Concepts of Slavery. ” “Slavery as defined in the international instruments must, therefore, be reviewed in an effort to identify and clarify the categories of practices included within its current definition. ” “United Nations: Slavery Needs to be Eradicated, Says UN Chief. ” Asia News MonitorMar 01 2010. ProQuest. Web. 19 Apr. 2013 .

Slavery is developing in new methods, including debt oppression and human rafficking, also the sale of children. Slavery origins are ignorance, self-indulgence and chauvinism. According to “United Nations: Slavery Needs to be Eradicated, Says UN Chief. ” “We must create a climate in which such unthinking abuse and cruelty are inconceivable. One way we can do this is through remembering the past, he stated”. It would be very good and I think this is happening, is that we should be wise and learn from the past, because back then intolerance and racism where one of the key things that made slavery spread and develop.
