The CARICOM Reparations Commission (CRC) in collaboration with the Center for Reparation Research (CRR) and the Antigua and Barbuda Reparations Support Commission, will convene a one-day symposium in Antigua and Barbuda on the topic “Western Banking, Colonialism & Reparations”.
The Symposium will take place at the Starfish Jolly Beach Hotel on Thursday, October 10, 2019. Through the Dominica Reparations Committee, Discover Dominica Authority, has provided sponsorship for the participation of the Karina Cultural Group from the Kalinago Territory to perform at a cultural event which will form part of the one-day symposium. DDA’s support will also act as a means of being aligned to this year’s theme, “Aspiring towards a culture of great governance”.
The cultural event will showcase the talents of the indigenous people in Dominica, as the CARICOM Reparations Commission will use this symposium as an opportunity to recognize and promote the reparatory justice concerns of indigenous people in the region.
