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 Historical Research (IHR), School of Advanced Study (SAS), University of London in partnership with the Black Cultural Archives and the British Library.
This three-year 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. This will be supported by digitized government documents from the British archives and Caribbean government records.
