Our world between independence and dependence

21 October, 5pm CEST

Many former colonies gained their independence after the Second World War. At the same time, the commencing cold war created new dependencies for many states. What do independence, dependence and freedom mean today? How does colonialism continue to shape the world we are living in?

Featuring Dr. Lynda Iroulo (German Institute for Global and Area Studies), and Vincent Bababoutilabo (musician and activist).

Live on stage: AWA Khiwe (hip-hop artist).
