Abstract
The recently created International Criminal Court should interpert its statute to establish jurisdiction over all existing forms of slavery. If the Court refuses to construe the new law in this way, the international community should amend the statute to include all forms of "involuntary servitude" except military conscription and criminal incarceration pursuant to legitimate due process.
