For the seventh time, the Centre for International Health (CIH) of Ludwig-Maximilians-Universität Munich is hosting the Humanitarian Symposium Munich - this year with the focus on: Decolonizing Humanitarian and Development Aid.
In the symposium, which is designed as a full-day online presentation series, experts and NGOs from the field as well as experts from various academic disciplines will discuss aspects of decolonising humanitarian and development aid in various presentations.
Among others, Hodan Ali (Durable Solutions Unit - Mogadishu, Somalia) will speak on "White Supremacy Aid Culture" and Maria Eriksson-Baaz (Uppsala University) on "Whiteness and humanitarian work: historical and contemporary challenges". A detailed programme of the symposium can be found here.
The aim of the symposium is an intensive and critical examination of "decolonisation" and one's own prejudices as well as self-reflection on one's own privileges. In addition to the lectures, there will also be the opportunity to exchange ideas and practices.
