SLAVERY IN MAURITANIA
Mauritania was the last country in the world to abolish slavery officially (1981). It took even more years to actually criminalise it (2007).
Nevertheless, Mauritania experiences a multigenerational cycle of slavery up until today. Therefore, slaves are still standing on the map of Mauritania in this illustration.
