The Different Faces of Slavery
Slavery today has many different faces whereas in the past there was basically only one type, chattel slavery, where a person bought and sold another person as personal property. Slaves in this system could also be traded, rented out or inherited and their “master” has the right to abuse, brand, breed, exploit or kill them. Although this brand of slavery is the least prevalent in the world today, it still exists in places like Mauritania and Sudan.
