Decolonising Development: Research, Teaching and Practice
The Action DecolDEV takes on the challenge to reconstruct the concept and practice of development after its deconstruction. It aims for a resetting and diversification of the actors, structures, institutions and spaces in which knowledge about and for development is produced, shared, contested and put into practice. The Action will progress beyond the state-of-the-art through exploring and formulating alternatives in three areas: Research, Teaching and Practice.
Centre for Global Political Economy
The Centre for Global Political Economy studies the mutual entanglement of political and economic power in international relations, the understanding of which is crucial for strategic decision-making of both state and non-state actors in the contemporary globalized world. The centre thus explores the multilevel governance of various global regulatory regimes, and changing production and financial flows, including developmental aid and energy relations. Moreover, we decipher the resultant socioeconomic inequalities and power asymmetries inherent to them among and in the varieties of world regions, national economies, social groups, and also gender relations.
