UNESCO Slave Route Project and the GHFP collaborate with an aim to develop conceptions, methodologies, approaches and practices of healing that can also help address the roots of racism.To this end, on 18/19 October 2018 , we co-organised an international symposium hosted by the Berkley Center at Georgetown University, Washington, D.C. This 1st International Symposium aimed to address the root causes of racial prejudices and discrimination derived from slavery, both past and present.

Following the first Symposium, the GHFP Research Institute launched a Research to understand and map out methodologies, approaches and practices relevant to healing the wounds of trans-Atlantic Slave Trade and Slavery.

On 24th September 2019, the GHFP Research Institute hosted a second International Symposium on Collective Healing of Traumas: New Possibilities for Peace in Communities.
