South African higher education students have for the years 2015 and 2016 stood up to demand not only a free education but a decolonised, African-focused education. The calls for decolonisation of knowledge are the ultimate call for freedom. Without the decolonisation of knowledge, Africans may feel their liberation is inchoate and their efforts to shed Western dominance all come to naught.
Over the years various African leaders including Steve Biko wrote about the need to decolonise knowledge. The call for decolonisation is largely being equated with the search for an African identity that looks critically at Western hegemony. Biko sought the black people to understand their origins; to understand black history and affirm black identity. These are all embedded in the struggle to decolonise and search for African values and identities.
The contributors in this book treat several but connected themes that define what Africa and the diaspora require for a society devoid of colonialism and ready for a renewed Africa. “The discussions we develop and the philosophies we adopt on Pan Africanism and decolonisation are due to a bigger vision and for many of us the destination is African renaissance”. Everyone has a role to play in realising African renaissance; government, churches, universities, schools, cultural organisations all have a role to play in this endeavour.

After many years of continuous development, operational risk management can now be regarded as an important and independent management discipline in its own right. It is a value-adding activity that has a direct or indirect impact on bottom-line performances of organisations and is fundamentally concerned with good governance and involves consistent alertness and continuous improvement.

In addition, Operational risk management attempts to bridge the gap that exists between some of the theoretical concepts of operational risk and the practical implementation. It firstly deals with the development phases of operational risk, and then illustrates the effective application of an operational risk management process. It also discusses relevant issues in the field and how to deal with current risk exposures. Operational risk management is aimed at undergraduate students as well as managers interested in the management of operational risk. Jackie Young is a professor in risk management at the University of South Africa, specialising in operational risk management.
