{{ safesubst:#invoke:Unsubst||$N=Use dmy dates |date=__DATE__ |$B= }} The abolition of slavery occurred at different times in different countries, and sometimes occurred sequentially in more than one stage: for example, as abolition of the trade in slaves in a specific country, and then as abolition of slavery throughout empires. Each step was usually the result of a separate law or action. This timeline shows abolition laws or actions listed chronologically.

This article also covers the abolition of serfdom.

Although slavery is now de jure illegal in all countries, de facto practices akin to it continue today in many places throughout the world. {{#invoke:main|main}}
