This intersectional anti-racist collective began during the 2015 student protests and occupation at the University of Amsterdam. By organising events, participating in public debate, and supporting anti-racist activism in the Netherlands, the collective aims to ‘decolonise’ higher education in Amsterdam. This project involves ‘creating a more balanced curriculum that includes non-Eurocentric perspectives’ and diversifying the student body, staff and management of universities.
