The abolition of the slave trade is often represented as a turning point in international law but may be better understood as a facet of imperial legal consolidation and a product of inter-imperial law. The talk considers how legal approaches to slave ship captures resulted directly and indirectly in calls for greater control over subordinate jurisdictions in the British empire.

Der Vortrag wird auf Englisch gehalten.
