Abstract

This chapter presents a transnational perspective of educational reforms in higher education institutions globally. In a conversation with Thomas, Mama explores the current knowledge systems employed in Westernised universities and the barriers that these epistemologies and ontologies present for racially minoritised people. Further, Mama highlights how the praxis of educational policies and the legacy of colonialism promote Black Suffering, before exploring the relationship between neoliberalism, capitalism and the decolonisation project. Mama proposes a pan-African approach as a means of enhancing the decolonisation project.
