CERLAC presents the fourth forum in the 2020-2021 Baptista Lecture series:
The Transnational Case for Reparations: Repair, Redress and Emancipation
This second event in a two-part conversation on reparations for enslavement focuses on the ways in which organizations and communities have sought reparations for enslavement transnationally. What might reparations for enslavement look like locally and transnationally? How are activists pursuing forms of redress and reparation in relation to broad questions of social and political alternatives and struggles for emancipation? What are the implications of reparations for Indigenous people, their land and sovereignties in the hemisphere in different locations? What forms of further research are needed and what partnerships and alliances can be created between Canadian, Caribbean and Latin-American reparations scholars, organizations and activists? Panelists take up these and other questions from locations in Brazil, Colombia, Europe and the Caribbean.
