The discursive programme WIR SIND ALLE BERLINER: 1884-2014 commemorated 130 years of the Berlin Conference and proposed a space for deliberation on the repercussions of this crucial event, offering thereby an occasion to analyse the ideological, economic, political, and humanitarian justifications that underlay colonialism and still frame the asymmetric relations between the West and the non-West today.
