Der Kurs findet auf Deutsch statt, aber mit englischsprachigem Forschungsmaterial.
Research integrity matters for North-South collaborations. Colonial histories, the continuing of economic inequalities, the scientists' labour migration, a dominance of Northern approaches to scientific topics and unequally equipped research environments are crucial factors that structure these relationships. The seminar invites students to develop a conceptual understanding of research integrity under the afore-mentioned conditions and to reflect on numerous factors that influence research environments in African states. In this respect, selected research systems of African states will be portrayed and discussed on a comparative basis. Finally, we will develop a model of research collaborations with African and European participants that tries to factor in the different original conditions, the goals of actors within different systems, their approaches in international scientific/science-policy affairs and their styles of planning and doing research. The seminar will build on and focus on an analysis of first-hand empirical data from field research.
