Tracks for the decolonisation of the Belgian development cooperationOngoing
This PSR focusses on understanding the challenges of decolonizing Belgian development cooperation. The project will reflect on the different interests, values, and motivations leading the relations with the aid intended beneficiaries and also gain knowledge of the various meanings and understandings of development aid from the institutional perspective and its partner organisations.
The project will create a pedagogical and collaborative space to generate new vocabularies and development aid understandings to change practices. This space will offer the possibility to outline the implications for mapping new visions of decolonisation in the development aid context, break with the mono-linear discourse of development, and enact commitments against colonialism. A methodological approach that helps identify the multiple perspectives of development aid actors to build new pathways will be used, including Social Cartographies (SC), Forum Theatre (FT) and 3Horizons as participatory research methods.
