The Congress of Vienna and the Atlantic Slave Trade

Forrest A.


The article studies the consequences of the slave trade prohibition by Britain in 1807 and the influence of this Act on the elaboration of the joint declaration condemning the slave trade during the Congress of Vienna and its role in the Anglo-French relations from 1807 to 1830-s. The other key issues are obstacles of the slave trade ban enforcement, regional economic changes, and the Atlantic politics of the main maritime states.
