Session Abstract

The starting point for this roundtable discussion is a growing demand to decolonise knowledge. We are positioned at a critical moment, one replete with a potential to shape the future of development (and development studies). The panel participants will discuss their perspectives and approaches to decolonising development (studies), focusing specifically on how new forms of solidarity and conviviality can be promoted and sustained to achieve global social justice.

The roundtable is scheduled to take place in the early morning (European time) in order to ensure the inclusion of EADI’s constituency in the Asia-Pacific region.
