We are currently conducting research in partnership with the University of West London, exploring the ongoing legacy of the Transatlantic Slave Trade in Britain. The research aims to provide an understanding of the historic adversities faced by the Windrush generation and any racial disparities they currently face in contemporary Britain. It will also address current and longstanding issues such as the 'Windrush scandal', the Windrush compensation scheme and reparations/reparative justice. 

We are looking for 20 members of the Windrush generation to take part in an anonymous semi-structured interview about their life experiences as a member of the Windrush generation, their views upon the Windrush compensation scheme and reparations for the Transatlantic Slave Trade.  All data collected will be kept confidential.

 

If you are interested in participating in our research, then please fill in the form below. You will then be contacted with more information about the research.
