[AGRRIN] Generating bodies: from aggression to insurgency. Contributions to a decolonial pedagogy

The project is centered on the black and Afro-descendant population residing in Portugal, which is subject to multiple forms of racial discrimination, highlighted in the 2012 UN report (UNReport, 2012), such as inequalities in access to education, public services, employment, racial profiling in the justice system and police violence. In the last 5 years, this situation has worsened, calling for the renewal of studies on citizenship, education

and cultural diversity from a perspective of human rights and cognitive justice. The guiding line of this project is the place that bodies take on as whistleblowers of otherness, how they support the construction of discriminatory practices and their consequent expressions of identity insurgency.
