Abstract

In a quest for more equitable and inclusive ways to create knowledge, this paper seeks to contribute to the growing debate on decolonizing research through a theoretical dialogue with key Latin American thinkers, informed by two critically analyzed case studies, located in Veracruz, Mexico, a cultural and biologically diverse state. Furthermore, we recapitulate the most important aspects from experiences that we believe may be useful for implementing collaborative research in similar contexts. We conclude by highlighting four important challenges for the rising field of research decolonization towards more just and sustainable societies.
