In the run-up to the fourth World Social Forum held in Mumbai, India in January 2004, civil activists and students organised a major series of seminars in Delhi University to discuss the Forum and its politcs. The 'Open Space' seminar series, as it came to be called, picked up on the idea of the Forum as a relatively free space, where all kinds of ideas could meet and be discussed.
This book, the first in a series that explore the new ideas generated by the discussions that took place on all these issues, comprises chapters based on the transcripts of presentations made by academics and activists during the seminars, as well as diseussions on questions arising from the presentations. Can the World Social Forum help us to conceptualise and actualise a new politics?
