In this chapter, we aim to reflect on our own positionalities vis-à-vis the topic of South–South Development Cooperation (SSDC), both in terms of research background and experience, our personal journeys and our institutional setting, and explore what these yield for a better understanding of SSDC. We argue that, instead of de/legitimizing certain positionalities for being un/able to speak about certain phenomena, the best way forward is to bring different partial perspectives and knowledge together in order to complement one another for a better and more complete comprehension, like a kaleidoscope in which different shapes and colours produce a fascinating picture.
