Ton Dietz interviewed on Radio 1 about the Africa Knows! conference

Ton Dietz

Ton Dietz, co-organiser of Africa Knows!, was interviewed by Radio 1 about the conference and its themes. He said that still, in joint European/African research projects, the Northern scholars (and the research funders) are usually at the controls. The way of doing things is still determined from the North. He hopes this conference, with 50% of the participants coming from Africa and 50% from Europe, will strengthen equality, will make Europeans look differently at Africa and African knowledge, and will lead to an autonomous approach of Africa.
