Post-Colonialisms Today

Post-Colonialisms Today is a policy research and advocacy project on development policies and initiatives adopted, promoted, or formulated by governments and policy institutions across Africa in the immediate post-independence period. The project will apply feminist and heterodox approaches to economics to recover the key policies that sought to address the material, cultural, and spiritual limitations imposed by colonial regimes, and identify ideas that can be usefully adapted to on-going development challenges in Africa.

Submissions for the first group of researchers are closed, but general expressions of interest and questions are still welcome at
