(p.69) Chapter 4 Slavery and the Emergence of Non-governmental Organizations
Understanding Global Slavery

Kevin Bales

University of California Press

This chapter looks at the first major human rights organization and campaign, and uses the history of the antislavery movement to chart the evolution of the organization and the influence of nonstate actors. It argues that bureaucratization has been a key stage in the acquisition of influence, and, further, that the effort to redefine slavery—from an economic issue to a moral one—created an ideological basis which transcended national boundaries.

Keywords:   human rights organizations, human rights campaign, antislavery movement, bureaucratization
