The ethics of reparations policies


Nuti, Alasia; Page, Jennifer (2018). The ethics of reparations policies. In: Lever, Annabelle; Poama, Andrei. Routledge Handbook of Ethics and Public Policy. New York: Taylor & Francis, 332-343.

Abstract

We identify the ethics of reparations policies as its own distinct field of inquiry, and consider several neglected ethical issues that arise in the process of devising reparations programmes. The problem of political instrumentalization has to do with the fact that reparations can be a way for the governments to bolster their legitimacy rather than achieve justice. The problem of exclusion refers to individuals with seemingly valid claims being turned away. Finally, the problem of inclusion has to do with including would-be claimants who are not mobilized in making a reparations demand, as well as with reconciling competing reparations demands.
