Abstract :
The situation of slavery in Southern Iran during the Qājār period (1797-1925) is described through a discussion of the slave trade, both foreign and domestic; how the maritime import of slaves was banned; how this gave rise to the export of Baluchi slaves to Oman, and finally the various ways slaves were made use of, both in domestic and agricultural tasks, as well as how they were treated.

La situation de l’esclavage en Iran méridional pendant la règne des Qājārs (1797-1925) est analysée à travers la question du traffic d’esclaves, étrangers ainsi que locaux. On s’interroge sur l’interdiction de l’importation des esclaves par voie de mer résultant dans une augmentation de l’exportation des esclaves Baluch vers l’Oman. Enfin, on aborde les fonctions différentes assignées aux esclaves, dans les domaines aussi bien domestique qu’agricole, et comment ils étaient traités.
