Social Forums - Challenges and New Perspectives


Author #1


The author challenges the participants of the World Social Forum (WSF), an annual meeting held by members of the anti-globalization or alter-globalization movement, to be reflective about the tradition of the forum and its methodology. He indicates some possibilities that are emerging in relation to the activities to be organized with the 2008 Global Day of action. He argues that even with few participants at the 2008 Forum, it was a big step forward to increase the African civil society political participation and articulation at the continental level.
