Glasgow Slavery Audit

What is the report about?

We commissioned this report to determine the historic connections and modern legacies derived from the Atlantic slave trade.

The core of this study is focused on individuals, who were residents of Glasgow and elsewhere, involved with Atlantic slavery between c.1603 and 1838. Some of these individuals shaped today's city, whilst others are memorialised in civic space.

How we're responding

This report is an audit of Glasgow's historic connections to the slave trade and its legacy. No recommendations have been made on next steps. Rather, this is a matter for the people of Glasgow to determine and we'll be holding wide-ranging public discussions and consultations.
