The Slave Trade

While the notion of a “duty to remember” was in large part developed in the aftermath of the Second World War, the tragedy of the slave trade and slavery has only recently entered the debate, raising specific ethical and socio-political issues in the societies concerned. The Slave Route Project endeavours to enhance mutual understanding among peoples by creating a dynamic process to help develop new forms of citizenship, respect for cultural diversity, intercultural dialogue and the fight against prejudice and racism.
