Decolonisation, Development and Faith

This blog series captures some of the learning that took place during the roundtables that we organised at the Annual Conference of the Development Studies Association in the summers of 2021 and 2022. The roundtables brought together researchers, practitioners and theologians from Africa, Asia, Europe, the Middle East and North America who work at the intersection of decolonisation, development and faith. Our work also builds on the Fair and Equitable Initiative of the Joint Learning Initiative on Faith and Local Communities.

The series is curated by Jennifer Philippa Eggert and Emma Tomalin.
