The article argues that the overall World Social Forum (WSF), the annual meeting held by members of the anti-globalization or alter-globalization movement, process embodies an uneven, often contradictory, but evolving democratization with WSF advancing this agenda thru its presence in Nairobi, Kenya. It focuses on the WSF held in Nairobi, which is described as one of the most peripheralized countries. It begins by presenting the roots of the WSF and eventually concludes with the achievements of the addition of the WSF held in Nairobi.
