Slavery and slavery like practices have many faces and forms. This thesis aims to investigate one of the most widespread forms of slavery, namely bonded labour. Bonded labour is an exploitative interlinking of credit agreement and labour, where a debtor has to repay his debt through long term servitude. In this thesis, I focus on two cases of bonded labour in agriculture: debt bondage among Tharu people in Nepal and Sahariya people in India. In both cases the establishment of systems of bonded labour is connected to the long term processes of internal colonization, dispossession, nationalization of natural resources, and the introduction of private land ownership.
