THE REPARATIONS PROJECT
During the Spring of 2018, the Race and Public Space (RAPS) Workshop of the Institute for Public Knowledge will explore the prospect of reparations for Transatlantic slavery and colonialism, widely recognized as one of the most horrific events in world history.
This inquiry will take the form of common readings to explore and frame the central issues, lectures by experts to interrogate the stakes, legal research to evaluate the case, and economic and statistical analysis to explore the feasibility of reparations for peoples and nations victimized by colonial slavery.
