Decolonizing Struggle Today

Hamid Rayhan
The term refers to the history of imperialism and [post-]colonialism, and the violence skilled through its diverse participants of the Global South who are not usually nation-states, and it is able to be described in transnational social phrases or as a fixed of practices, attitudes, and relations. Such understandings of the Global South permit us to remember it as a class without of a centralized command, described scale, or one of a kind form. As we will see, it is critical to understand the various variety of actors, discourses, institutions, and movements that contain this category. The Global South does now no longer as a unified, cohesive, coherent, and homogeneous entity freed from conflicts and interests. It is crucial to achieve this for analytical in addition to political reasons. The existence of the south in the north and the north in the south complicates the replica or reproduction of neocolonial and neo-imperial power, specifically in mild of growing global inequalities, rejecting everything about the Global North may be a risky position, and its complexities need to be taken into consideration in the identical manner because the Global South. The slogan of the world social forum is other globalization as possible, according to civil society; The struggle against racism echoed in various institutions; Protection of environmental and customary community rights is part of an international agenda; And decolonization experience is part of an international agenda.
The mobilization of binary categories such as center/periphery, west/east, or first/third world produces simplification, reduction, and essentialization. Politically, self-awareness of subaltern position itself can be used as a form of strategic essentialism. As a result, the Global South imaginary is associated with the history of the periphery, the east or the rest, and the third world. Subital reaffirmation does not allow the colonial difference to be forgotten until the present. Subaltern positions can be validated connection with the international system, economic dynamics, cultural expressions, academic structures, and thinking systems. Eurocentric properties of the power of the modern empire raised with Western dominance. Global South was the most strongest power on the turn of the century in presenting and claiming future alternatives for neoliberal globalization, as well as the continuation of decolonization struggles.
