The relationship between transformative justice and decolonizing campuses, cities, and nations, is an integral part of our research on democracy. Such research begins with the recognition that slavery and other forms of violent subjugation, extraction, and displacement have long time been tied to the nominal cause of democracy in the United States and other parts of the world. Citizenship, elections, and practices of representation continue to be dependent on unequal and violent systems of exclusion. Thus, to work towards a transformation of these systems and a genuine practice of democracy, as researchers we situate our work alongside the public demands for racial justice, reparations, and the further decolonization of our institutions.
