Decolonising agendas have gathered force in recent years. This panel will address how music studies has contributed and responded to public and academic debate about processes of decolonisation. What progress has been made in music practice, pedagogy and research to further social justice, equality and curricular diversity? To what extent have critiques managed to challenge discrimination and reconfigure sedimented knowledge/power hierarchies? What further practical steps can be taken to break down barriers to accessing music education, to strengthen the 'pipeline' and to enhance musical inclusivity? This interactive roundtable is an opportunity for collective reflection on historical legacies and current activism in music practice, teaching and research.
