Thanks Aram- very important points in relation to the SDGs and the nature of resource transfers
Great sketch Aram. Very interesting points stemming from Truman to contemporary South-North net transfers. Very interesting you touched on the frame of SDGs.
Thanks SOO much to all our speakers for such insightful talks, inspiring and thoughtful, so much to discuss!
If anyone has any questions, please start putting these into the chat so we can start to collect them.
All questions or comments welcome as ever!
What might the giving up of power look like in universities like Leeds in relation to research projects in development (beyond the choices of individual researchers)?
Thank you to all speakers for their insightful talks! I would have a question for Prof. Ziai: what can we learn for today from what triggered the frame transformation from Roosevelt to Trumans time?

I think this also connects to teaching on development- as educators creating safe spaces where discussions on privilege and encouraging critical reflections on development practice, knowledge AND learning can take place. And within in that - educators themselves leaning into the discomfort of their own privilege.
What might this new frame look like? How do we know we achieved that we intend to achieve?
This is the book Aram refers to: https://rowman.com/ISBN/9781786613585/Beyond-the-Master%27s-Tools-Decolonizing-Knowledge-Orders-Research-Methods-and-Teaching

Our publications reflect to some extent the dilemma we are facing: often in journals with limited access and/or published as books at exorbitant prices. We are linked in our careers to the assymetries of the global power structures. Part of the struggle is therefore to address the patterns of recognition (and definition) of achievements recognised: open access publications (not subsidised with money which could have spent on researchers from the South but instead thrown at commercial hegemonic publishing houses from the North, for which we all offer work free of charge to be published for sale) should receive more credit. We need to challenge the framework of reference and recognition in the North, according to which we are forced to deliver if we want to make an academic career in universities… (just one of the numerous challenges and pitfalls)
This is so important Henning, the incentives built into the system that shapes our behaviours that are very hard to challenge and undo, thanks so much
Thank you Henning, that is an important point for us Northern researchers!
Thanks so much Aram, Julia, Ruth, Keya and Lata! Very much enjoyed this discussion.
You also made an important point just now Aram: an injury to one is an injury to all is an universally applicable slogan (while coming from the South African labour movement in the anti-Apartheid struggle)
Thank you everyone, this was a really informative discussion!
Thanks everyone, hope for more opportunities to engage further!
Thanks to all contributors and organisers!
