More than money: the logic of slavery reparations (

Without understanding the history of slavery and colonialism, we cannot understand the extent to which societies today are shaped by systemic racism, unfair distribution of assets, inequality and violence – and how all of these have led to despair, marginalisation and disenfranchisement in parts of the population.


Restorative justice, which recognises the role of marginalised groups, is key to enabling people to lead decent and dignified lives. A post-reparations world might acknowledge the complexity of the colonial past in its entirety, including the damage caused by racial hierarchy; it would not be afraid to discuss the ways in which race and ethnicity, class, gender, religion, ableism and age intersect.

I guess "restorative justice" has this broader meaning you're suggesting exactly because it "might acknowledge the complexity of the colonial past in its entirety". It's not just about to pay descendants of slaves a certain amount of money but rather a more holistic approach how we view and live in our society, and therefore it goes far beyond former slavery and race issues and include also gender, age, etc. But that's just my interpretation.


Yes, it's extremely complex but necessary. A lot of decisions in our societies and economies have been influenced by implicit biases based on race, gender, age, etc. which hurt those discriminated against. And with the upcoming rise of artificial intelligence these biases will creep also into the algorithms.
