Special issue aims and scope

In the face of particularly vicious contemporary colonial and racist violence, it is vital to call upon all antiracist and decolonial powers to understand current struggles and envision transformed futures. Taking different trajectories across countries, regions, and players, antiracist and decolonial approaches have gathered significant attention worldwide. Education has played a central role within these approaches, although it is sometimes an instrumental rather than a transformative role. The project of decolonising education strives to counter racial discrimination by reforming national histories and curricula to render them more inclusive. However, these efforts have not (yet) been properly prioritised and systematically funded. On the contrary, constructive and progressive initiatives, such as foreign language and cultural programmes and supplementary schooling initiatives, have tended to suffer from disinvestment and neglect. Similarly, Indigenous, non-eurocentric and/or otherwise marginalised perspectives and scholarship on education have been largely ignored, raising important questions about who is supposed to benefit from the reform of national curricula and pedagogical practices and why.
