Research Project ECHOES Launches Key Interventions Website

Horizon 2020 research project ECHOES launches website to give space to key interventions in the ongoing, global discussions about racism, colonial heritage and memory

2020.08.06 | Jacco Visser

The larger research project ECHOES addresses the silence on the colonial past in official narratives about Europe's heritage, arguing that the EU urgently needs not just to acknowledge this phenomenon but to reflexively and progressively include it at the heart of its identity.  

In these times of anti-racist protests and heated discussions about European, colonial pasts, the research project has launched an initiative, key interventions, which brings many different voices in play around European colonial heritage. The website can be found here
