Towards A More Decolonial, Anti-Racist and Feminist Public Engagement
About the Research
This report is a summary of a research project on public engagement conducted by the ICN between November 2021 and June 2022. The research focuses on better practices in public engagement in the international cooperation sector. To strengthen sector actors’ public engagement work, the ICN explores decolonial, anti-racist and feminist approaches. Broadly, this research focuses on big social justice questions around equity and power. This research provides space for introspection and aims to:
- Highlight decolonial, anti-racist and feminist practices in public engagement from different locations with different actors;
- Curate tools and practices that can inform more ethical practices in our decolonial, anti-racist and feminist work;
- and shape narratives and priorities in policy and practice within the sector that will hopefully contribute to transformative change.
