Wilberforce Institute home | University of Hull

The Wilberforce Institute aims to advance knowledge of slavery and emancipation, informing policy, business practice and public debate at local, national and international levels.

Our mission is to produce high quality and innovative research on slavery in all its forms, historical and contemporary.

We do not see these as separate fields of inquiry; on the contrary, we regard history as a lens through which to study contemporary issues regarding slavery and exploitation. This is our unique selling point.

As a community of researchers, we are committed to disciplinary excellence and to interdisciplinary research that will benefit society on a national and international level.

We collaborate with academic partners, NGOs, museums and businesses, and act as a forum for academic discourse and interaction on slavery past and present.

We aim to maximize the benefits of research by advancing fundamental knowledge of slavery and emancipation, contributing to better public policy, social cohesion, community identity, education, the arts and the heritage sector.
