Decolonize Zurich is a reading and action-oriented group. We meet on every first wednesday of the month. We switch between ‘Theory’ and ‘Stammtisch’: we discuss a certain postcolonial author or talk about ongoing social and political debates. Everyone is welcome to join us! 

From the beginning, we wanted to put our thoughts and discussions into action! In order to actively and publicly engage with colonialism and the decolonization of thought patterns in Switzerland, we organize one action in spring and autum. Our goal is to bring postcolonial theory to practice in the public sphere and to challenge (neo)colonial patterns of thought in everyday life.

If you would like to participate at the group organization and take part of our actions, write us an e-mail to
