Decolonizing Aid What is the place of global feminist solidarity

1 hour and 11 minutes

There has, in the past few years, been calls for a radical shift in how international aid and development cooperation are configured. Donors in the global North and the infrastructure surrounding them have been accused of upholding white supremacy and saviorism, mirroring past colonial relationships with decision-making power concentrated in the Global North.

The panel explores how feminist networks globally can work together to decolonize aid, while prioritizing collective care and reclaiming global sisterhood, intersectional organizing and feminist agenda setting

Decolonizing Aid

The concept of “decolonizing aid” has arisen in past years, as a response to the uneven power dynamics and imbalances that exist within the humanitarian, development and peacebuilding sectors.

The Talk Town podcast has invited Catherine Wanjiru Nyambura, international development expert and Pan African feminist, to reflect on the concept and share her insights and experiences on how to break these uneven power balances and introduce new practices and efforts to decolonize aid.

Catherine Wanjiru Nyambura: is an international development expert and Pan African feminist. She has ten years’ experience in advancing feminism, gender equality, youth development, and sexual and reproductive health and rights. Catherine is currently affiliated with the ATHENA Network where she is the Director of Programs focusing on feminist activism and movement building.

Feminist leadership and organisation building

Feminist Leadership is gaining ground in women’s rights organisations, NGO’s and global movements that work for transformative change. This episode of the Talk Town podcast has invited Joanna Maycock, feminist and independent consultant, to unpack the concept of feminist leadership, what it looks like, how it can be practiced, its purposes and potentials for organisations that work for social transformation.

Joanna Maycock’s consultancy practice is working to support Civil Society leadership to bring feminist principles into systems change and working with leaders to build working cultures aligned to their values. Her focus is on the feminist understanding of power and moving from coercive to transformative power. Joanna Maycock has over 25 years’ experience in leadership positions in European and international Civil Society in Brussels, such as with ActionAid and president of CONCORD. Most recently, she was Secretary General of the European Women’s Lobby.
