Egometer German Colonial History
From the second half of the 20th century and well into the 1960s, many colonies in Asia and Africa attained political autonomy from their colonizers. In many ways, colonialism is by no means over and its legacy manifests itself in various aspects of our lives today. For a long time, there has been debate on the impact of colonialism and postcolonial power relations. The discourse is by no means over and more questions, demands and proposals on how to dismantle unfavourable relations between the global North and the global South continue to arise. Germany, like many former colonial powers, is also dealing with its colonial past in different contexts.
