Assessing the World Social Forum

AllAfrica.com, 19 January 2007.

Kameelah Rasheed, a Johannesburg-based community activist, grapples with the overall impact that the World Social Forum has for civil society and the realisation of sustainable development.

In her quest, Rasheed, consults written reports and papers on this particular subject which lead him to become pessimistic about the overall impact of the WSF. In a counter argument she argues that we should not abandon the WSF to the ‘bourgeoisie and liberals’ who we assume are harmoniously preoccupied with talking and reform agendas. Rather, we should work toward radical re-appropriations of this problematic space.
