On November 10, CQ and the Centre for Global Health at the Dalla Lana School of Public Health (DLSPH), University of Toronto co-hosted a webinar titled, Decolonizing Global Health and the Role of Critical Qualitative Research.
Scholars, healthcare professionals, activists and others have advocated for “decolonizing” global health, which involves working to redress power imbalances in the field that originated in colonialism. It requires a knowledge, leadership and paradigm shift.
Featuring recent DLSPH graduates Victoria Blackwell-Hardie, Mariana Ferraz Duarte and Jannah Wigle, the speakers reflected on how their theoretical and methodological approach contributes to efforts to decolonize global health, discussing how critical qualitative research methods and the practice of reflexivity can meaningfully contribute towards a decolonization process.
