Slavery in Africa: a dialogue between Europe and Africa
Setting up an international research network dedicated to the legacy of slavery in Africa and Europe: such is the purpose of the SLAFNET research project coordinated by the IRD. Funded by the European Commission, it brings together a multidisciplinary team of some 50 researchers in a consortium of 13 partners from the North and South.
For three years, SLAFNET will promote synergy between European and African teams on the social dynamics resulting from the abolition of slavery until the present.
The project will mobilise over 50 researchers in France, Kenya, Mauritius, Cameroun, Ethiopia, Senegal, Germany, Portugal and the UK to:
The SLAFNET Network
Europe : French National Research Institute for Sustainable Development, French National Center for Scientific Research and University of Nantes (France), Bath Spa University and University of Birmingham (UK), University of Lisbon (Portugal), University of Hamburg (Germany).
