Aims and scope

As a journal in the cross-disciplinary human and social sciences, Bandung aims at providing an academic and policy platform for the scholars and practitioners to develop new theoretical perspectives, share revealing findings and exchange views. These should be grounded on the complex post-colonial landscapes of the African, Asian and Latin American peoples, for identifying their own ways and strategies of development and decolonization. Alternative paradigms, worldviews, ontologies and epistemologies as well as praxis will be encouraged to develop context-sensitive debates pertinent to the African, Asian and Latin American intellectual traditions and empirical, cultural and theoretical realities.
