Open and responsible science: From harm to justice in knowledge production

12 October @ 3:00 pm 5:00 pm

As part of ISS’ 70th anniversary celebrations, we will host an event on Open and Responsible Science, Engaged Research and Epistemic Justice: From harming to healing through knowledge co-creation. The event will be hybrid (both in-person and online).


Can Open and Responsible Science (ORS) respond to the challenge of justice in access to knowledge (epistemic justice) given the staggering amount of inequality in academic knowledge?

ORS that seeks justice in access to knowledge puts equity between forms of knowledges and ways of knowing at the very centre of knowledge acquisition.

The discussion will revolve around the following questions:

  1. Which injustices in knowledge production and co-creation do invited speakers experience in their (communities’) life and work?
  2. What are their demands towards academia/academics?
  3. What alternative forms of knowledge production and co-creation do they propose?
