The Centre for Reparations Research at the UWI will lead the implementation of CARICOM’s Reparatory Justice Programme, with three strategic goals:
- promoting research on the legacies of enslavement, colonialism, and native genocide in the Caribbean and on how to bring justice and positive transformation to these legacies with a particular focus on CARICOM’s Reparatory Justice programme;
- working with national and regional reparation commissions and committees to promote education at the UWI and across Caribbean school systems on these legacies and the need for justice and repair; and
- promoting advocacy for reparatory and social justice by building a capacity to provide consultancies to CARICOMand other relevant institutions, raise public awareness and support activism around the Reparatory Justice programme.
