The abolition of slavery in North Africa as a global social phenomenon
Scholars have mainly attributed the abolition of slavery in North Africa in the 19th century to the end of the imperialist influence, and, to a lesser extent, as part of the Muslim world. What is more, the study of slave communities in North Africa is limited in single national cases instead of offering a global perspective. The EU-funded SlaveVoices project proposes a new approach based on the written testimonies of slaves and their children. It will study slave societies, not in the single states of North Africa, but as a globalised social phenomenon that takes into consideration the role of multiple factors from Africa, Asia and Europe.
