Decolonising Peacebuilding Practice Consultation
Datum: 05-10-2021Tijd: 5 en 6 oktoberLocatie: Online
How do unequal power dynamics between international actors and local peacebuilders affect your work? Are peacebuilding concepts and frameworks rooted in Western thinking? How does structural racism and ‘White saviourism’ show up in the culture of international peace interventions? Join the conversation on 5 and 6 October!
Launched in May 2021, Peace Direct’s
report "Time to Decolonise Aid”
explores how racism and discrimination have been institutionalised into the international aid system. While the report gave recommendations for dismantling established discriminatory and racist beliefs and practices, it is vital to examine the specific ways that these issues manifest in peacebuilding practice.
We need a radical reimagining to decolonise peacebuilding practice, to effectively redress global power imbalances, and to support communities leading justice and peacebuilding efforts. We invite you
to be part of that conversation, with people from around the world.
, we will hold a two-day consultation from October 5th –6th to discuss how to effectively address structural racism, and decolonise the peacebuilding practice.
