Symposium: Decolonizing EZ! New impulses for Africa-Related Development Education



With the upcoming conference we would like to address the three thematic focus points based on the themes of the previous conferences during the symposium: Culture and Arts, Business and Afro-feminist_LGBTIQ* perspectives on politics and education in the context of global inequalities.

In the context of the symposium on July the 7th, we should create a dialogue explicitly with protagonists from development education. Together, we want to develop new impulses and impulses for Africa-related development education and make them visible.

Together with our speakers and audience, we would like to discuss, among others, the following questions: How can the future be constructed, shaped and lived in the context of the currently existing inequalities between "Africa" and "Europe"? What needs to be done to realize a decolonized future?

The symposium "Decolonizing EZ! New Impulses for Africa-Related Development Education" on July 7, 2018 will be the final event of the project "Defining the Future: African-Diasporic Perspectives in the Context of Global Inequalities". The main purpose of the project is to record, analyze and make visible the different African_diasporic future perspectives for development policy work.

The program will consist of lectures, panel discussions, workshops as well as book presentation and is aimed at both the interested public and especially those working in the fields of both development and education.
