Decolonizing Development

February 17 @ 1:00 pm - 4:00 pm

In this interactive 3-hour session, we will collectively explore what a decolonized space or a decolonized approach for global development actually look like? How can we structure our organizations and our programs to draw to center more liberatory practices and help us radically re-imagine global development? This workshop will explore and use decolonizing tools including history and power analysis and values-centered design for the design and implementation of global development programs; as well as the exploration of policies and frameworks underpinning the global development system. Through this workshop, participants will: (1) Explore concepts of power, imperialism and development; (2) Learn and apply history and power analysis tools; (3) Consider alternatives that center liberatory practices.
