Marjolein van Pagee – De Balie

This presentation was part of the public discussion “Who writes our Colonial History,” organized by historian Patricia Gomes.
Marjolein van Pagee analyzes how exclusion works in the Dutch context. She uses three examples: the long-term impact of the Ethical policy on how particularly white progressive leftists support the exclusion of people of color as well. The second example focuses on May 4th the National Commemoration day of the Netherlands. The third example analyzes how non-white critics of the Dutch government sponsored research on 45-49 (Jeffry Pondaag and Francisca Pattipilohy) have been ignored and sidelined.
