In the “Whose History?” project, we collected information on how colonialism is treated in history education. We conducted a survey to find out how colonial issues are taught in history subjects at Finnish universities and how widespread the interest in dealing with these issues is among students and researchers.
Is colonialism seen as a separate phenomenon from Finnish history? How much is the history of Finnish minorities covered in the teaching? A report on the results of the survey was published on 24.10.2018 at the Old Student House in Helsinki. The report was produced by the Working Group on Colonialism within Historians without Borders. The report was also commented by Mona Eid of the Brown Girls, Yusuf M. Mubarak of the Finnish-Somali Society, Leif Hagert of the Roma Youth Council and the Cultura Foundation.
