UWI and Glasgow launch Masters in Reparatory Justice


Global reparations continues to make headlines, with the latest being a prominent cover story in TIME magazine just last month. The University of the West Indies (UWI) is internationally recognised as a leading driver of the movement, and in the formulation, activism and academic research underpinning claims for reparations for slavery.

The UWI in collaboration with partner university, the University of Glasgow (UofG), announces a unique postgraduate degree offering in Reparatory Justice.  This first-of-its-kind, double degree Master’s programme offers an opportunity to work with scholars in reparatory justice at The UWI and the UofG, with a focus on the Caribbean and slavery reparations, while drawing on reparatory justice case studies in global contexts.  Among the career fields and opportunities anticipated for graduates are Lobbyist, Journalist/ Writer, Policymaker, Researcher, Advocate, and practitioners in Law and Justice and Education.

Are you thinking about postgraduate study? Consider the new MA/MSc Reparatory Justice.  Choose to study either in the Caribbean (Barbados or Jamaica) or Glasgow, Scotland and graduate with a degree from both institutions.

Limited scholarships (equivalent to a 50% tuition fee waiver) are also available. The deadline for scholarship applications is July 24, 2023. Apply today at https://www.gla.ac.uk/postgraduate/taught/reparatory-justice/
