Research output: Contribution to specialist publicationArticleProfessional


In the absence of a coordinated national political response, grassroots and civic initiatives can play a key role in pushing for recognition and justice for the colonial past. Nicole Immler and Niké Wentholt, from the University of Humanistic Studies Utrecht, draw on the example of the Keti Koti Dialogue Tables in the Netherlands to show how such initiatives can contribute to breaking down cycles of denial, acknowledgment of the systemic nature of historical injustices and transforming citizens’ engagement with the colonial past.
