Anti-Slavery International

Linked with Jeanne Devos – Belgium.

Anti-Slavery International is the world’s oldest international human rights organisation. Its roots stretch back to 1787 when the first abolitionist society was formed. This broad-based society was at the forefront of the movements to abolish the slave trade (achieved in Britain in 1807) as well as slavery throughout the British colonies (achieved in 1833).

Anti-Slavery International, founded in 1839, is the world’s oldest international human rights organisation and the only charity in the United Kingdom to work exclusively against slavery and related abuses. We work at local, national and international levels to eliminate the system of slavery around the world by:

  • Urging governments of countries with slavery to develop and implement measures to end it;
  • Lobbying governments and intergovernmental agencies to make slavery a priority issue;
  • Supporting research to assess the scale of slavery in order to identify measures to end it;
  • Working with local organisations to raise public awareness of slavery;
  • Educating the public about the realities of slavery and campaigning for its end.
