Video from KM4Dev Knowledge Cafè 25 – From knowledge injustice to knowledge justice: the role of KM4Dev

Held on 28 & 29 July 2022, this was KM4Dev’s 25th interactive monthly knowledge café. It built on past cafés on uncomfortable truths in development.

Gladys Kemboi and Sarah Cummings shared current perspectives on knowledge-related (also called epistemic) justice. Instead of the common focus on understanding the multitude of epistemic injustices, Gladys and Sarah put forward an exciting, brand new perspective on knowledge-related justice which can help us in our efforts to counteract injustices in international development, such as not listening to communities and marginalizing local and knowledge.

Charles Dhewa also shared his perspectives on indigenous African commerce, a vibrant phenomenon which has largely been ignored in development policy and research.
