How is the ‘Global South’ defined in the Call? Which countries are part of the ‘Global South’?
In the call for proposals, we do not define the ‘Global South’ not as a strictly delineated geographical area, but as a term that challenges existing hierarchies in science production. The ‘Global South’ includes countries that occupy a marginalized position in global science production. The DFG list of developing countries can serve as orientation (https://www.dfg.de/download/pdf/foerderung/internationales/entwicklungslaender/entwicklungslaender_liste.pdf). However, the BCGE is open to other countries/regions. It is advisable to justify in the application why a country or partner belongs to the ‘Global South’ from the applicant's point of view or why it strengthens the cooperation of the Berlin University Alliance with the ‘Global South’.
