Book launch and presentation: Challenging Global Development: Towards Decoloniality and Justice (online)
26 February, 13:00 CET
This open access book presents contributions to decolonize development studies. It seeks to promote and sustain new forms of solidarity and conviviality that work towards achieving social justice.Recognising global poverty and inequalities as historic injustices, the book addresses how these can be challenged through teaching, research, and engagement in policy and practice, and the sorts of political barriers these might encounter. From a variety of perspectives and contexts, these chapters examine how decoloniality and solidarity can be developed, offering in-depth historical, theoretical, epistemological, and empirical analyses. The book was edited by Henning Melber, Uma Kothari, Laura Camfield and Kees Biekart.
The webinar begins with the editors’ introduction to the book, followed by introductions to some chapters. After that there will be room for questions and comments to discuss the emerging issues related to decolonising development studies.
