Paramaribo Accords

From Roses, Tulips, & Liberty

The Accords for Equitable Transition of Governance and Upliftment of Indigenous Nations, commonly known as the Paramaribo Accords, was a set of agreements signed in the wake of the independence of the British Empire's settler colonies during the 1940s. The agreements aimed to ban the implementation of racist policies in the post-colonial governments, and prepare the colonies for eventual majority rule.

The effectiveness of the Paramaribo Accords is a subject of widespread debate, particularly given Natalia's strategic negotiations for special exemptions. As such, Natalia was able to circumvent some provisions of the accords, and de facto institutional racism continued to thrive in Natalia in the latter half of the 20th century.

Key provisions

  • Dismantling of institutional segregation
  • Preparation for eventual majority rule
  • "Uplifting" of non-white majorities
