This chapter analyzes the concepts of property and slavery. It first addresses the question of why the definition of slavery is problematic in terms of the powers connected to the right of ownership. It then looks at the definitions of slavery that were suggested by Honore and Patterson, before it finally tries to interpret the Convention definition.

Keywords:   property, slavery, powers, right of ownership, Convention definition
