Theories from the Global South

Organizers: Arathy Puthillam (UC San Diego), Sakshi Ghai (University of Oxford)

  • Discuss equitable collaborations and the barriers and opportunities for the inclusion of researchers in the Global South, including those with lived experience in the Global South.
  • In order to have valid theories with enough explanatory power to understand complex social behaviors, we should platform researchers in the Global South to ideate and explore novel social phenomena.
  • We will host two sessions: one focusing on researchers working in the Global South and another focusing on researchers studying/working in Global North institutions.
