Co2libri - conceptual collaboration - living borderless research interaction

The project aims to make visible knowledge, theories, and research practices from the "Global South" in Berlin’s research landscape. Because the unfortunate reality is that researchers and intellectuals from marginalized regions or from ethnic or religious minorities are often left without a voice in scientific discourse. The project participants – a global network of researchers, artists, and activists – want to explore knowledge and theoretical contributions from the Global South. Their goal is to make the way knowledge emerges and the criteria for recognizing knowledge more equal across the globe. Prof. Dr. Kai Kresse from Freie Universität Berlin and Leibniz-Zentrum Moderner Orient (Leibniz Center for Research on Modern Orient) and Prof. Dr. phil. Claudia Derichs from Humboldt-Universität zu Berlin are leading the project, which is working closely with international partners in Nairobi, Beirut, Delhi, and Vienna, among others.
