To mark the occasion of the Jamaica National Council on Reparation visiting London, we are organising an event on “The Legal Basis for Reparation” on 16 November 2017.
Edward Fitzgerald QC will chair a distinguished panel of Lord Anthony Gifford QC, Professor Verene Shepherd and Mr Bert Samuels, who will provide their invaluable insights on the legal basis for reparations due to the people of Jamaica. All are members of Jamaica’s NCR, established by the Government of Jamaica in 2009 to advise the Government on the case for reparation and to examine models compensation for past injustices suffered by the descendants of slaves in Jamaica.
This is a timely and important event and we look forward to welcoming you on 16 November.
