Mathematics is a major economic driving force, for better or for worse. However, mathematical research and teaching and hence societal and economic impact are not distributed evenly across the globe. Many countries are effectively cut off from the global mathematical community. There are a number of initiatives aimed at helping mathematical communities in the Global South connect with the mathematical community in the Global North. All these initiatives face challenges, from lack of funding to lack of personnel to politics to the more inherent issue of how to promote mathematics in another country without being colonialist. In this talk, we will discuss some of these initiatives, their approaches and successes, their challenges and solutions.

This talk is part of the C.U. Ethics in Mathematics Society (CUEiMS) series.
