Abstract

The movement to decolonise African knowledge systems has roots etched deep in history, which seeks to address the Eurocentric hegemony of academia and shed a light on its conscious and unconscious biases. These enduring approaches to knowledge production stifle the research process and how people contribute to that research. Research assistants in the global South are increasingly included in this discourse, with calls for a better consideration of their abilities, a proper respect for security precautions when working in conflict settings and their greater visibility in the process of research.
