What should British universities do about benefits received from past wrongs?

Research output: Other contribution

Abstract

There is a growing debate in British and other universities about how their connections with various historic wrongs, especially those connected with slavery and colonialism, should be addressed. This article considers the pros and cons of two possible responses: either they should do nothing at all, or they should recognise the tainted benefit, raise awareness about it, make a full public apology, and provide appropriate recompense to the descendants of direct victims.
