Slavery and its legacies

DASA research examines slavery as a historical and contemporary phenomenon. 

DASA’s interdisciplinary tradition supports comparative and country-specific research that contributes to the theorisation of freedom and un-freedom, and the documentation of different forms of slavery, abolition and emancipation around the world. A recent collaborative project tackled present-day manifestations and legacies of slavery in West Africa.
