As an interdisciplinary and transregionally oriented initiative, co2libri seeks to apply a multicentric perspective which engages with neglected positions of Southern theory and visions for a decolonial research praxis as a central part of our academic self-understanding. Our collaborative endeavor builds on long-standing connections with partners in Africa, South and Southeast Asia, and the Middle East. We propose ways forward through collaborative engagement, building on mutual trust. Using dialogical formats that facilitate substantial open-ended discussion, we aim to re-think theory and method, academic practices, and research ethics.
