Summary of Domestic Prohibition

Slavery and Slave Trade
Practices Similar to Slavery
Servitude
Forced or Compulsory Labour
Human Trafficking
There appears to be no legislation in place in Georgia which prohibits slavery, although slavery may form an element of the offences of trafficking (articles 1431 and 1432) and crimes against humanity (article 408) under the Criminal Code.
There appears to be no legislation in place in Georgia which prohibits institutions and practices similar to slavery, although article 36 of the Constitution affirms that marriage must be based upon the free will of spouses and forced marriage is criminalised under article 1501 of the Criminal Code. Practices similar to slavery may also form an element of the offence of trafficking under articles 1431 and 1432 of the Criminal Code.
There appears to be no legislation in place in Georgia which prohibits servitude.
There appears to be no legislation in place in Georgia which prohibits forced labour, although encroachment upon freedom to work is criminalised under article 168 of the Criminal Code and article 2 of the Labour Code affirms that labour relations must result from the free will of parties.
Provisions related to trafficking in persons are found in the Criminal Code under articles 1431-1432 which deal with trafficking in persons, trafficking in minors and use of the services of a trafficked person.
