The Windrush Scandalin a Transnational and Commonwealth Context
A three-year Arts and Humanities Research Council (AHRC)
project led by the University of London’s School of
Advanced Study (SAS).
The Windrush Scandal in a Transnational and Commonwealth Context is an Arts and Humanities Research Council (AHRC)-funded project led by the Institute of Commonwealth Studies (ICwS), School of Advanced Study (SAS), University of London in partnership with the Black Cultural Archives in Brixton.
This three-year research project seeks, for the first time, to produce a scholarly examination of the so-called ‘Windrush Scandal’ within a fully transnational framework, one that properly considers the agency of a wide variety of official and non-official actors from both sides of the Atlantic and the role of the post-colonial and Commonwealth contexts of international relations.
The project’s key objective is to develop a unique digital research resource of extended interviews on the national and diplomatic activism around the Windrush scandal, supported by digitized government documents from the British archives and Caribbean government records.
