Can Reparations Buy Growth? The Impact of Reparations Payments on Growth and Sustainable Development

Issue: 

Reparation refers to the repairing of damage through the payment of money or through other methods employed by the offending party. This paper adds to the discussion on reparations by relating the effect of foreign aid on economic growth to the effect of reparations payments for slavery on economic growth; thereby providing economic proof for the viability of reparations. Previous academic papers on reparations do not support their claims with economic reasoning; rather, they are contented with providing a moral argument.

The Scandal of the British Slavery Abolition Act Loan

Issue: 

The British government redeemed the Slavery Abolition Act loan in February 2015. This loan was contracted by the government in 1835 in order to pay £15 million (approximately £200 billion in today’s money, in terms of public debt burden) in cash compensation to slave-owners and their beneficiaries.1 The loan was provided by the Rothschild syndicate, and the interest rate was set at a favourable rate for the lender. The bonds were likely sold onwards on securities markets soon afterwards, providing the Rothschild syndicate with financial profits.

How Long Are the Chains of Slavery in the United States? Estimates of the Intergenerational Effects for Black Males Between 1880-1930

Issue: 

While chattel Negro slavery in the United States ended in 1865, racial inequality between the descendants of Negro slaves and other racial groups, particularly whites, persists. While explanations for the causes of this inequality are many, the extent to which it is a consequence of Negro slavery itself is an em- pirical question that is relatively underexplored.

British Universities and Caribbean Slavery

Issue: 

British cultural and educational institutions universities have, in some cases, begun to tackle their past entanglements with slavery and with the wider his- tory of colonialism; most, however, remain in a reactive mode and confine their en- gagements with their problematic pasts to responding to specific stimuli, often generated from outside the academic sector altogether. At the same time, existing and indeed new material celebrating institutional histories, benefactors or individual scholars continues to elide difficult truths.

An International Law Deconstruction of the Hegemonic Denial of the Right to Reparations

Issue: 

The dominant denial of the right to reparations for slavery relies on two premises. One, the principle of non-retroactivity in international law holds that facts must be judged by the law in force at that time. Two, it is asserted that transat- lantic slavery would have been “legal”. The article shows that the latter premise is wrong. We need to look into “pre-Maafa”1 international law and African laws concerning slavery, forced labour, and crimes against humanity.

The Psychological Trauma of Slavery: The Jamaican Case Study

Issue: 

There are few studies exploring the psychological impact of slavery on the Caribbean island of Jamaica. This review seeks to present a psychological frame- work to better understand the mental health of these abducted, enslaved, abused and traumatised African-Caribbean people. Their possible emotional states during and after slavery are interpreted with an emphasis being placed on the intergenera- tional transmission of their trauma. The psychology of reparation is also discussed.
