Reparations in Global Perspective
May 3 @ 6:00 pm - 7:00 pmFree
Labyrinth bookstore, the Princeton Civil Rights Commission, and Princeton University’s School of Public and International Affairs are excited to invite you to a showcase of Princeton University students’ research on reparations, featuring independent research by juniors in a course taught by Lecturer Anastasia Mann. Note that this event is in-person only, so bring your mask and come out to hear about reparations in a global perspective.
From California to Bosnia, Iraq to DC, and Palestine to Louisiana, not to mention right here in New Jersey — students of public policy have been investigating: What does it mean to repair systemic injustice? What’s an apology good for? How does memorialization relate to repair? Can a society repair a harm that it is still perpetrating? What’s the difference between transitional and transformational justice? Does gender-based violence require gendered redress? Is affirmative action always reparatory? What is meant by “historical reckoning” and why is it crucial to repair?
This event will be held in person only; masks and proof of vaccination will be required.
