Post-emancipation in/security: A working paper

Anim-Addo, Anyaa (2016) Post-emancipation in/security: A working paper. Working Paper. University of Birmingham. (Unpublished)

PDF - Accepted Version


In the first working paper of this series, Patricia Noxolo outlined the research network’s perspective on security as created across different scales and by bottom-up as much as top-down processes. Equally, the project’s recognition of the history of in/security in the Caribbean over a longue durée, and particularly the significance of slavery within this longer history, calls for some engagement with the postemancipation period. With the advent of emancipation, followed by the slower process of changing socio-economic relations within plantation societies, the nineteenth century proved an important testing ground for everyday struggles.
