In this episode, we talk to Uzma Sulaiman, associate director of Community Jameel, an independent, global organisation.
The opportunity to chat with Community Jameel grabbed our attention as we rarely get to talk to a research funder from the Global South, specifically one targeting societal challenges in the Global South with Global South academic leads. We had a great conversation about their work and the importance of the Global South being a key player on the funding side of international research collaborations.
We, of course, also talked about the challenges of diversity and international collaborations, where there can be some very clear differences in different parts of the globe.
Discussions like these are important to us all to shift the perspective from a traditional Global North perspective and ensure we build effective research collaborations based on equality. The funding landscape is slowly shifting globally, and we should all pay attention.
