Development and Colonialism

To mark the bicentenary of the abolition of the slave trade, the International Development and Governance (IDG) research group has organised a series of summer seminars.  These events explore the interconnections between abolition, development and colonialism and the continuing relevance of these unfinished projects in shaping the present.
