The Center for the Study of Slavery and Justice (CSSJ) at Brown University is a scholarly research center with a public humanities mission. Recognizing that race and slavery were central to the historical formation of the Americas and the modern world, the CSSJ creates a space for the interdisciplinary study of the historical forms of slavery while also examining how these legacies shape our contemporary world. Some of the CSSJ’s projects include the Human Trafficking project, which explores contemporary forms of human bondage and engages in public programming around this issue; the Investigating the American Criminal Justice System project, which focuses on prisons and relations between the police and communities of color; and the Freedom Archive project, which creates an inventory of materials in Brown University Library’s Special Collections related to slavery and abolition. During the grant term, the CSSJ will continue its impactful programming activities.

Grants to this Grantee
for general support of Brown University's Population Studies and Training Center
for the BREAD development economics research network's activities on population/reproductive health
The Bureau for Research and Economic Analysis of Development (BREAD) is comprised of renowned economists working on population, poverty, and global development issues. Hewlett Foundation funds would enable African scholars to participate in the full range of BREAD’s activities, making it possible to include young faculty members and senior scientists in discussions of research, policy, and program improvements aimed at the developing world. In each year of the grant, two conferences will be organized, at which innovative research in the economics of population and global development will be presented and discussed. Select African scholars will also have the opportunity to collaborate with one or more BREAD members during extended visits to develop their research and analytical skills.
