Centre – Periphery is used as a structural metaphor to refer to the relationship between an advanced or metropolitan 'centre' and a less developed 'periphery', and is often applied to the relationship between capitalist and developing societies. From a Western perspective, countries that are considered to sit at the 'periphery' of global economic power include Afghanistan, Madagascar and Zimbabwe, in contrast to those that have historically positioned themselves at the 'centre', such as the US, UK and France. Zamyn is acutely aware of the inadequacies of this type of categorisation, and believes that it cannot enable the wealth of resources and richness of culture that countries traditionally dismissed as 'peripheral', 'developing' or 'poor' to be expressed or recognized or respected. Zamyn aims to encourage a deeper and less reductive analysis of the global realities of the 21st century.
