About the series

#BLM debates and other anti-racism protests gave the discussion about the decolonization an impulse. Blogs, panel discussions (sometimes very heated) and Tweets stumbled over one another. We witnessed many statements and opinions, but perhaps not so much common ground from which to proceed.

KUNO, Partos and the Institute of Social Studies (ISS) take one step back and approach the discussion in a series of talks. Step by step, they highlight an aspect of this debate. We ask two experts to engage in a conversation with one another to explore the controversies and perhaps find some common grounds.
