This piece holds onto the foundation of the material conditions of the experience of Indigenous people out of which decolonial theory springs, first by exploring decolonial theory as it re-shapes practice globally, and second by recognising how radical power risks becoming harnessed and domesticated in Western academic spaces. Finally, it suggests that the Global Challenges Research Fund is not fertile ground for truly decolonising geographical knowledge in the UK.
