Beyond Coloniality of Internationalism

Sharing core norms and values
Posted Jul 06, 2021 | E-International, Sabelo Ndlovu-Gatsheni

Sabelo Ndlovu-Gatsheni  argues in this article for E-International that Europe and later North America in their over five hundred years of world domination failed to deliver a “universal universalism.’’ Instead, the gift of Europe to the world is global coloniality. While people currently live not only in an epistemically-colonised world but also in a colonially-regulated world structured in favour of the powerful capitalists, the world order is beset by contestations, resistance and struggles for change. The world of knowledge is therefore in turmoil with universities across the globe having become sites of struggles. An epistemic revolution may be a prerequisite for constituting a ‘new International.’ Whether the present generation will rise to this moment is uncertain.
