INOSAAR: Global Report

Research output: Book/ReportOther report

Abstract / Description of output

The purpose of this report is to give an overall account of the work we have conducted during the build-up to the grant and throughout its two-year lifespan, including reflections on the lessons we have learnt from bringing together different actors engaged in the quest for reparations. The process of reporting on this work offered us the opportunity to think through our key priorities going forwards, including our vision for the future of the INOSAAR beyond the AHRC grant and our plans for further activities. The contents of this report are of relevance to any person, organization or any institution interested in academic-community working relations, the struggle for reparations and reparative justice and/or the process of decolonization.
The report will begin by situating the work of the INOSAAR within a much broader historical timeframe that is linked to the recent re-emergence of calls for reparative justice for the crimes against humanity relating to Afrikan enslavement. It will then outline the specific history of the creation of the INOSAAR and our aims and objectives, before summarizing our key achievements and activities to-date. This will be followed by an analysis of some of the key lessons that we have learned as a result of our meetings and discussions, and some of the ways that we have sought to confront and overcome any internal tensions in order to build solidarity and uphold our shared Principles of Participation that are rooted in the concept of cognitive justice. Finally, we will outline our vision for the future direction of the INOSAAR in response to the three strategic pillars of the IDPAD: recognition, justice and development.
