This paper presents an overview of work-in-progress on the opening chapter of a book project examining the practices and ideologies of anti-colonialism in the 1950s and early 1960s: Peace, Decolonization and the Practice of Solidarity. In the book, I explore parallel strands of anti-colonial and peace movements and their entangled transnational connections; networks of activism that were largely, but not exclusively, reflections of a white politics of decolonization. My focus in this paper comprises two key themes of the opening chapter of this work, which addresses the conceptual and epistemological frameworks of anti-colonial and peace activism: notions of ‘development’ and ‘civilisation’.
