The Netherlands should repay people whose ancestors it has enslaved. At least, that is what the proposition argued in a show debate on the second training day of the IDEA Debate Exchange. The proposition argued that this would only be fair as a repayment of debts for crimes that Dutch society benefited from and for which the slaves were harmed and their ancestors still suffer.
