3.6.2023  14:30 - 16.15 h

UNIVERSITY OF COLOGNE, Albertus Magnus Platz, Philosophicum, Raum S 75



The ECAS-Conference is not included in the africologne festival pass.

If you only want to visit our panel on 3 June at 2.30 pm, you can get a free ticket here.

In addition to the calls to 'provincialize' the West and to decolonize the social sciences, there are now demands for global reparations and restitution made by the countries of the South and by allied movements in the countries of the North with respect to the past and present consequences of the asymmetrical relations between the West and the rest of the world. africologneDIALOGFORUM @ ECAS 2023 will examine the nature of the demands for reparations and restitution, the reasons for their current resurgence, the reception given to them in the countries of the North, as well as the conditions required for the implementation of a reparations and restitution agenda beneficial to the countries of the South.

For the first time, the africologneDIALOGFORUM will take place within the frame of the ECAS.
