The Decolonial Studies Research Network (DSRN) intends to link scholars, researchers, practitioners, teachers, and students interested in decolonial studies. The DSRN was formed through the initiative of the members of the Decolonial Studies Program of the University of the Philippines Center for Integrative and Development Studies and with close collaboration with the Philippine International Studies Organization (PHISO).
DSRN focuses on encouraging conversations about the forces of modernity and coloniality that continue to impact institutions in the Global South in ways that could hinder them from achieving their liberating potential. However, DSRN does not intend to limit itself to area studies and seeks to involve comparative cross-disciplinary analyses in various Global South regions, including critical engagements with Global North institutions. The network is open to scholars, students, and practitioners in any field of knowledge.
