Abstract / Description

Working in a university that has one of the most diverse student populations in the UK, with a high level of black and ethnic minority students, it is clear that the traditional curriculums of the West often do not reflect the interests of our students, and, equally importantly, they do not see themselves reflected in the subject matter. Students’ lived experience is often not present.
This paper reflects on a student conference held by the Subject Area of Politics and International Relations at London Metropolitan University focused on decolonising the curriculum.
