Emerging Worlds - Ethnographic Explorations of New South-South Connections 

‘Emerging Worlds’ is a collective research program aimed at exploring the yet unfolding South-South connections between Asia, Africa and Latin America. 

The ‘Emerging Worlds’ research program embarks upon a collective enquiry into the yet unfolding, and accelerated 21st century phenomenon of south-south connections between Asia, Africa and Latin America.

The Global South is now increasingly being shaped up through South-led investments, development aid and migration in search of opportunities and livelihood within the South.

Through grounded ethnographies in a number of locations within Asia and Africa, the project seeks to rethink the idea of the Global South and the ways in which it presents itself as a political-economic force in the 21st century.
