The Cosmopolitanization of Science- How the Global South Shapes Emerging Science - Dr Joy Zhang

Good governance of science is at the heart of developing national competitiveness for many countries. It is commonly perceived that the ‘globalization of science’ may result in a ‘Westernization of science’. Yet the embedded ambiguity of new scientific advancements and the changing nature of transnational collaborations have enabled a shift in power dynamics in world science. Drawing on her 2012 book ‘The Cosmopolitanization of Science’, Dr Joy Zhang, Senior Lecturer in Sociology at the University of Kent, uses China’s experience in stem cell research as an example to demonstrate how actors from the Global South can assume a more contributory role in steering global scientific norms.
