1.Decolonising South African Universities: Challenging the Anthropocene and Re-Centring Indigeneity.
Background: Debates Colonialism, global capitalism, environmental destruction and destruction of myriad cultures are intimately intertwined. They have impacted our sense of what it means to be human (and who is fully human) and our social systems, including education. Therefore, in working on the decolonisation project to decolonise education, our attention must be multi-focused and recover indigenous cultures and heal the damage, addressing capitalism and emphasising the environment as a source of knowledge.

2.The post-colonial is neocolonial in the Indian Ocean region: the case of Chagos seen through the African-centred decolonial theoretical lens.
Background: The status of the Chagos Island remains a subject of struggle in international relations pitting the United Kingdom and, by extension, the U.S. against the indigenous people of the Chagos who were forcibly displaced and exiled in order to accommodate a U.S. military base involved in evil conflicts in the lands of the Orient. Mauritius joined this struggle on the basis that the islands were separated from Mauritius by the British on the eve of independence in 1968.
