Last updated about 1 year ago. What is this?

The term 'Global South,' as conceptualized through the lens of Bayo Akomolafe, represents more than a mere geographic distinction; it is an expression of the entangled histories, aspirations, and lived experiences of those marginalized by colonialist and capitalist frameworks. It symbolizes a collective identity shaped by resistance and resilience, encompassing regions and communities often relegated to the periphery of global power and wealth. The Global South is not just a place, but a confluence of ways of knowing, ways of being, and ways of becoming that challenge dominant narratives and foster a reimagining of human and ecological connections. This concept calls for a deep listening to the wisdom and stories of those who navigate the intersections of tradition and modernity, forging new paths towards justice and sustainability.
