[Video] On Babies and Bathwater: Decolonising Development Studies

In this Sussex Development Lecture (7 December 2017), I offer a conversation between personal experiences, reflections and decolonial scholarship to reflect on the fundamental, practical, institutional and epistemological implications of recognising the coloniality in the international development project. When we seek to part with the coloniality but not with the desire and imperative of global solidarity and justice, the following questions impose themselves: What do we keep? What do we throw out?

Agnes Otzelberger generously engaged with the ideas put forward in this talk in the following article: https://www.thegoodjungle.org/blog/2018/1/24/five-questions-you-need-to-ask-yourself-if-you-want-to-work-in-international-development
