On May 5th 2023, the KFPE holds its annual conference in collaboration with the SUDAC and
SOR4D programmes. This year's focus lies on processes of decolonizing research partnerships. On this website you will find the relevant and current information about the conference and the online workshop series.
Demands to decolonize relationships, practices and knowledge have increased in the last years. These demands have been raised due to persisting prejudice, repression and inequalities rooted in colonial legacy, and they touch all spheres of society, including science. At this year’s conference we want to discuss
What does it mean to decolonize research collaborations?
What is needed to decolonize Swiss research collaborations?
What can we do to decolonize research, teaching and collaborations?
The conference consists of two parts: a series of online workshops in the period of April 19- May 31 and the conference in Bern on May 5.
Conference 5 May in Bern The aim of the conference on May 5 is to bring together all actors interested in the debate on decolonizing Swiss research collaborations. We have prepared a diverse and interactive programme to provide different perspectives on decolonizing research collaborations, present different practical approaches and stimulate discussions among participants. Register before April 28 to join us for this interactive afternoon in Bern or online.
