With the growing demand for internationalization in academic knowledge production, the well-desired cooperation between international and transnational partners, especially between institutions from the so-called Global North and South, is often challenged by asymmetrical conditions of research, publication, outreach, impact and funding between the partner researchers and the institutions. With the Maria Sybilla Merian Centres, the German Ministry of Education and Research BMBF has created a funding line conceived as an opportunity for cooperation between researchers from different continents, working from complementary perspectives on issues that are increasingly becoming global. This Roundtable aims to offer an open space for representatives of MECILA and MECAM, the Merian Centres located in São Paulo and Tunis respectively, to share their experiences in mediating research processes between different institutional logics, epistemological gaps, but also urgent wishes of horizontal exchange and cooperation, in a global context of asymmetrical opportunities.
The topics discussed include research experiences and collaboration within the specific international environments of the Merian Centres, and exchange on theoretical perspectives on knowledge production and circulation.
