The Decolonising Initiative is a project recently funded by researchers, professors and teachers of the language center at the EUI who believe in the necessity to tackle colonial privileges and assumptions in the material and intellectual fabric of our institution.

This forum is a place to examine constructively, among other concerns, the matter of white euro-centrism in the content and framing of academic syllabi, a lack of diversity in the EUI community, and the legacies of colonial history in our institutions of learning.

The Decolonising Initiative is not a research working group and our members come from the communities of PhD researchers, postdoctoral fellows, academic faculty, and administration. We believe it to be vital that any members of EUI to be invited to participate in this wider conversation about anti-racism and racial justice that is taking place globally, both within and outside research institutions.
