Post-Colonialisms Today (PCT) is a research and advocacy project led by African activist-intellectuals recovering progressive policies from early post-independence Africa through a feminist lens. The project is housed at Regions Refocus. Recognising the continent’s subordinate place within the global economic order as primary commodity exporters, Africa’s early post-independence governments sought to transform their economies through policies for industrialisation, international solidarity, and delinking from colonial currency. PCT believes these experiences offer critical lessons for contemporary movements and policymakers confronting neoliberal policies on the continent today. 

Alongside generating analysis that has been featured in Africa is a Country, The Elephant, The Street Journal, Jacobin, Tribune, Inter-Press Service, Developing Economics, and a special issue in the Africa Development journal, PCT has facilitated advocacy through virtual advocacy events on topics like industrialisation, natural resource sovereignty, and the COVID-19 pandemic.
