UNESCO’S INTERNATIONAL SCIENTIFIC COMMITTEE ON THE SLAVE ROUTE PROJECT

 

Summer 2015 I was asked to join Unesco’s International Scientific Committee on the Slave Route Project. During its yearly meeting 26-30 October on the Cape Verde Islands, I was officially installed as a member of the 20 person committee for the coming four years. Main theme this year was UN’s proclamation of the International Decade for People of African Descent 2015-2024.
