On January 17, 2024, the Accord Research Alliance Faculty Group organized a webinar to provide a space for discussion on the Christian Relief, Development, and Advocacy (CRDA) journal’s special issue on decolonization published a few months before in November 2023. The webinar was moderated by Nina Kurlberg, one of two co-editors of the special issue, and started with remarks by two main discussants, Mafer Madriz, director of Compassion International’s partnership efforts focused on mobilizing and strengthening the capacity of local church partners, and Charlotte Bray, currently studying anti-racism and power in international development from a Catholic theological perspective at the Lincoln Theological Institute at Manchester University. These two responses were followed by a discussion that included insights from the authors of four of the journal articles: Bikita Mahdi and Thobekile Ncube, Rebecca Supriya Shaw, Clark Buys, and Emma Smith Cain. This third response is a collation of these insights, along with additional brief comments from Liz Muir and Alfred Sebahene.
