More than 200 years since the abolition of the transatlantic slave trade, the shocking reality is that new forms of slavery are still prevalent today. It is estimated that there are currently at least 12 million men, women and children in slavery around the world. The modern face of slavery includes forced labour, sexual slavery, child labour, bonded labour, forced marriage and descent-based slavery.
This resource from Amnesty International contains materials for one or two lessons. It explores the different definitions of modern slavery and uses case studies to demonstrate how slavery and human trafficking affect people’s lives. The activities can be used in a stand-alone lesson or can be incorporated into a scheme of work on related themes such as Contemporary Moral Issues, the History of Slavery, Fair Trade and Development Issues.
