This presentation explores the journey of researchers in International Relations based in India as they transfer the knowledge of their local realities into the global pool of knowledges. In this journey, they engage with coloniality embedded within social sciences that create divisions between universal and particular knowledge. The scholars also navigate through the asymmetries of global science that magnify voices emerging from the global North. In this journey, they engage with the varied local dynamics of knowledge production. Drawn from sixteen in-depth interviews conducted with researchers in India, the presentation offers a novel analysis of the global research landscape from the perspectives of these scholars situated at the ‘borders’ of the system.
This event will be particularly useful for researchers, policymakers and graduate students.
