Colonial Legacies Today: Indonesia and the Netherlands

  • International Institute for Research and Education 40 Lombokstraat Amsterdam, NH, 1094 AL Netherlands (map)

This seminar will bring together two themes. One is colonialism in the Netherlands Indies as a form of racism, leaving ideological and mental legacies in the Netherlands and how those legacies can be identified, critiqued and overcome. The second is a critique of colonial policies and their impact on conditions in Indonesia until today. How are labor, agrarian, human rights and women's movements working to overcome those conditions? How can international collaboration on these issues be advanced?

During this seminar I will give a short presentation on the legacy and influence of colonial thought on the research project Ind ‘45-’50 by NIOD, KITVL & NIMH.
