In the second meeting on the 2nd of June, we will explore the development cooperation perspective on the decolonization of aid with two prominent speakers:
- Tulika Srivastava, Director Women’s Fund Asia;
- Lydia Zigomo, Global Programmes Director at Oxfam International
With the #BLM debates, and other anti-racism protests, the discussion about the decolonization of aid got an impulse. Blogs, panel discussions (sometimes very heated) and Tweets stumbled over one another. We witnessed many statements and opinions, but perhaps not so much common ground to proceed from.
KUNO, Partos, and The Institute of Social Studies (ISS) take one step back and approach the discussion in a series of talks. Step by step, we highlight an aspect of this debate. We ask two experts to engage in a conversation with one another to explore the controversies and perhaps find some common ground.
Take a look at our website to find out which perspectives we address and which experts will lead these dialogues.
The conversations will be ZOOM-webinars. Participants to the webinar can participate via the chat and Q&A box. In the second half of the conversation, a selection of the comments and questions will be discussed by the speakers.
The dialogues will be moderated by Kiza Magendane, writer, essayist and knowledge broker & Prof. Thea Hilhorst, professor Humanitarian Aid at the International Institute of Social Studies.To register, click here.
