Shifting Knowledge Power: Pathways towards more equity in learning processes
April 20 @ 12:00 - 14:30 CEST
The international solidarity sector is gradually taking a more proactive approach to local communities by supporting local civil societies. Addressing this burning issue involves localizing aid for strengthening systems and organizations, as well as questioning partnerships and governance in organizations.
But is this sufficient ?
The way in which organizations design, monitor, and evaluate actions is not neutral and should be also questioned. More specifically, the methods used in our sector reveal unequal patterns of knowledge production and use that maintain inequality and injustice since they don’t acknowledge all types of knowledge. As a result, Indigenous communities and other knowledge holders from the global South, such as women and youth, are de facto excluded from learning practices.
How can affected people be really empowered through recognizing their situated knowledge? How can International solidarity organizations facilitate this process by revisiting their methodologies and learning processes? How can we shift the power in knowledge production and use ?
See you on April 20th, 2023, to share about your experiences and reflect on practical approaches to bring about change in current practices.
The workshop will be held in French, English and Spanish, with simultaneous interpretation, from 12:00 to 14:30 French time.
This workshop is taking place within the Social Change Workshop program. It is being held in cooperation with the global Knowledge Management for Development (KM4Dev) community of practice, the Asia-Pacific Evaluation Association and The Constellation.
