Chattel Slavery and Reparations: A Quick Overview

By Saoud Moussa Baccus, PhD

Dr. Saoud Moussa Baccus provides an outline of the difficult issue of reparations in this opinion post. The chattel slavery trade was a lucrative enterprise that mostly operated on the American continent. The author refers to the June 2023 publication of the Brattle Report, which states that the colonizing nations responsible for this abhorrent trade owe the descendants of those who perished in chattel slavery between 100-131 trillion USD in reparations. Dr. Baccus also discusses the different concerns related to slavery in Mauritius.
