The Global South Academic Network is a group of scholars devoted to building academic capacity in developing countries. We aim to strengthen research capabilities among scholars in the Global South, known as countries in the world that currently receive foreign development assistance.
Our goal is to foster the exchange of knowledge, expertise, and research methods through collaborative grant projects, co-authorships, summer schools, and studentships that include partners from universities and organisations in the Global South.
We ultimately hope to enable these partners to develop and lead their own research agendas, to train future generations of scholars to do the same, and to thereby address the critical problems facing their nations politically, institutionally, culturally, economically, financially, and technologically.
With these goals in mind, GSAN welcomes all scholars and researchers living in or studying a topic in the Global South.
