Dr. Chika Ezeanya, political scientist at the University of Rwanda, author, blogger and consultant, provides her vision of an authentic, independent development of postcolonial African societies and names examples for the use of indigenous knowledge systems which function independently from the „western” development paradigm (from 45:10).

The project "African Perspectives on Global Challenges in the Context of the Post-2015 Agenda Process" takes place thanks to the friendly support of the Landesstelle für Entwicklungszusammenarbeit (LEZ) and Engagement Global.
