Ets Haim and the Early Modern Debate on Trade and War with the non-European World

Yehonatan Elazar-DeMota is interested in revealing the contribution of the Sephardic Jewish Community in the Dutch Republic on the debate on slavery and the Atlantic Slave Trade. Their material contributions were invaluable to the slave-trading activities of the West Indies Company. Most important, they made a mark on the pan-European seventeenth-century Slave Trade Debate through their intellectual, legal and religious conceptions, which influenced the thinking of international legal discussions of the time.
