This special issue is an invitation to reconnect to the Non-Aligned and Bandung project, which imagined the current postcolonial and postsocialist geographies as a collective against the Imperial project of Global powers, and a call for reimagining that spirit of decoloniality and decolonization in current times of rise of virulent nationalism and global predatory capitalism.

Special Issue of Artha Journal of Social Sciences: "Postcolonial-Postsocialist Decolonial Investigations: A Programmatic Overture"

The dialogue between postcolonial and postsocialist conditions have immensely enriched the debates around decolonization, transitions, globalization, and resistance. Working at a conjuncture this dialogue is making substantive innovations in the field of humanities and social sciences. It also has powerful affect in the ways social movements and acts of political transformation are imagined, mobilized, and organized. While there is a robust exchange at the theoretical level, there is a need for more empirical engagement across the postcolonial and postsocialist geographies, especially in active collaboration with the Afro-Asian postcolonial, post-soviet, and postsocialist experiences. This special issue is an invitation to scholars to think around the possibilities of such conjunctural studies, their methodologies and their epistemological and political aspirations. This open-access special issue located in an institutional space in South Asia wants to provide another POV (point-of-view) to the postcolonial-postsocialist dialogue which is primarily concerned with East European experiences institutionally located within Europe.
