The Project

The MCRI project focuses on slavery, memory and citizenship to highlight the global migrations of African peoples from the 15th century to the present, offering a comparison of historic patterns of slavery to inform current public policy on issues arising from the persistence of slavery and racism into the 21st century.

The historic migration of trans-Atlantic slavery involved millions of Africans, altering the complexion of global demography. The aim is to increase our understanding of contemporary problems inhibiting the achievement of a multicultural world based on values of peace and justice. Every person’s dignity is enhanced through an appreciation of the past and present contributions of all citizens.
