Decolonisation Conversations | Episode 1: Reflexivity through Conversations
16 July 2021
The United Nations University International Institute for Global Health (UNU-IIGH) has been engaging in global discussions to decolonise global health as part of an institutional mandate to re-imagine global health futures.
“Decolonisation Conversations” is a video series that seeks to contribute to the ongoing discourse by featuring conversations with colleagues within UNU-IIGH about decolonisation and sharing the insights to stakeholders and the public.
Our first episode, “Reflexivity through Conversations”, includes a video montage introducing the topic of decolonisation and highlights a conversation between Dr. Emma Rhule and Dr. Harvy Joy Liwanag where they discuss reflexivity in the context of decolonising global health.
Our objectives are to:
• Facilitate an exchange of perspectives among colleagues within UNU-IIGH on what decolonising global health could mean, both individually and institutionally
• Share the insights emerging from these conversations to engage stakeholders in global health and the public
• Encourage people to initiate their own conversations about decolonisation in their respective positions in the global health system
Join the conversation and keep connected with us through our social media!
