This chapter discuss the implications of Responsible Innovation for the Global South. It highlights the complexity and challenges of innovation in the Global South, drawing on the reflections of anthropologists and post-colonial scholars to consider how responsibility (beyond growth) and RI might be relevant to countries in the Global South, without repeating the patterns of colonization which are contrary to RS’s underlying ethos of care approached to make these concepts. The chapter argues that, being the idea of innovation predominantly a fruit of Western thinking, its application (or imposition) to the Global South is likely to raise conflicts and contestation. The authors conclude the chapter with a call to embrace epistemic plurality and an ethic of care in approaching RS in the Global South.

Keywords:   Global South, epistemic injustice, innovation for development
