This webinar seeks to present and discuss what we call ‘inspirations from the South’ in order to promote and nourish an intense North/South dialogue, particularly in the domain of social innovation. Despite the existence of a large body of literature that incorporates a variety of approaches, it should be noted that prevailing social innovation concepts/publications are essentially European and North American. The academic world that is interested in social innovation reproduces the same pattern of cultural domination and colonization of the imaginary that is condemned to other areas of the so-called ‘science’ (Pozzebon et al., 2019). In this webinar, we argue for the value of a greater South-North knowledge sharing by providing an overview of the theoretical traditions coming from Latin America. This includes post-development and buen vivir, participatory action research and social technologies, to cite a few. Although presenting different historical trajectories, what all those streams share is a cultural and political positioning aligned with post-colonialism and post-scientism, challenging numerous premises of the Western vision of progress and science, including the supremacy of technical/scientific knowledge and emphasizing the importance of a higher local/peripheral protagonism. This webinar will promote reflection and exchange about the possibilities of integrating more purposely Latin American theoretical lenses and methodological approaches in our research projects.
