PROF. DR. ARAM ZIAI ON COLONIAL PATTERNS

WHAT COLONIAL PATTERNS EXIST IN DEVELOPMENT COOPERATION AND HOW CAN THESE BE DECOLONIZED?

brought answers to these highly topical questions Prof. Dr. Aram Ziai on September 23, 2022 in his presentation at the digital nationwide networking meeting of the partnership groups. He gave suggestions and impulses on how decolonization processes can be approached and advanced in partnership work.

Around 50 interested people listened to Ziai's remarks on historical power inequalities that continue to this day. Ziai traced how the problematic and normatively charged term “development” emerged from the context of colonialism and which power asymmetries persist in development policy contexts to this day. After the input, a lively discussion developed about how theory and practice can come together here and how important the critical perspective on one's own structures should also be for the development cooperation sector. The lecture contained many valuable impulses for the partnership groups to reflect on their own partnership work.

You can find the video on our Youtube channel. Prof. Dr. Aram Ziai is head of the Department of Development Policy and Postcolonial Studies at the University of Kassel, where he teaches and researches.
