Go ! Another World Social Forum Is Possible - 20 June 2004 - by Gustavo Marin, Pierre Calame
The next World Social Forum will be held in Porto Alegre from January 26 to 31, 2005. In five years, the WSF has imposed itself as a major event for all those who are attempting to build another world, as a place allowing the expression, in all its diversity, of those engaged in the alterglobalization battle. In doing so, the Social Forums have given rise to much new hope. They have so far, however, not been sufficiently able to take full advantage of their diversity as well as to (...)

Go ! Charter of Human Responsibilities: Taking up the challenge! - 18 December 2003 - by Edith Sizoo
A long process of wide-ranging discussions within the Alliance focusing on the need for a Charter of Human Responsibilities, its contents, legitimacy, appeal, efficacy, and its ultimate place in both civil society and within international institutions, led to a draft text which was discussed by the World Assembly of Citizens in Lille, December 2001.

Go ! First Phase of Proposal Papers Evaluation Completed: Results and Impressions - 6 October 2003
Submit the 60 Proposal Papers, and the enormous work they involved, for reading and collective evaluation beyond the many Workshops and Groups that drafted them in the past few years: such was the terrific challenge that the Nova CIS team in Barcelona took up and solved. To do so, they set up a process that lasted from October 2002 to July 2003 and involved the evaluation by 158 persons of 912 texts covering 35 themes, on the basis of nearly 15,000 contributions in 5 different languages. (...)

Go ! Cancún: Blocking the Neoliberal Plan and a New Opportunity to Advance Alternatives - 6 October 2003 - by Germà Pelayo
In the course of this past decade, the farmers in the countries of the South have been impoverished dramatically as a result of the liberalization of the world economy. The rich countries subsidize their agricultural products then market them broadly and cheaply in the countries of the South. The result of this agricultural dumping is that millions of small-scale farmers cannot sell what they produce, which condemns them to poverty and emigration. The WTO set up a meeting in Cancún from (...)

Go ! Elements for Consideration and Proposals - 18 July 2003
This overall, and most certainly incomplete view allows us to draw some conclusions on the experience and the future of the Geocultural Branch of the Alliance. While we can observe some slowing down of the activities of the Allies in the different regions, due most probably to a lesser central presence of the FPH, we can note at the same time that groups of Allies have remained active and are seeking to regroup. These groups, these initiatives, are facilitated as much by former Allies (...)

Go ! Proposals for further action - 16 April 2002 - by Gustavo Marin, Karine Goasmat, Robert David
The least one can say is that the crisis opened by the Israeli army intervention in Ramallah and other Palestinian cities on March 29, 2002 will be long-lasting and treacherous. After the second and last meeting of Colin Powell with Yasser Arafat on Wednesday, April 17, we were able to see that diplomacy is powerless. Neither the government of George W. Bush, nor the European Union, nor the Princes and leaders of the Arab States, nor the United Nations have been able to get the Israeli (...)

Go ! The Coexistence Index - 1 January 2002
The Coexistence Index (CI) is an instrument to measure levels of coexistence within a community, a society, or a country, and serves as a basis for comparison along with other social, political, and economic indices such as the GNP, or illiteracy and poverty indices. The point is to contribute to including tolerance and communication factors within a community as fundamental elements to determine its social health and plan suitable policies, as well as intervention by the proper actors to (...)

Go ! Agenda for the Twenty-first Century - 5 July 2001
One of the objectives of the World Citizens Assembly was to draw up an "Agenda for the Twenty-first Century," that is, to identify perspectives that were common to all the participants. The Assembly began with Socioprofessional Workshops made up of participants belonging to a same social or professional sphere. Every workshop expressed its own agenda, presented in the form of a "socioprofessional mapping" of the proposals. The similarity of the different mappings made it possible to identify seventeen common themes. Each of them was the subject of a Thematic Workshop. The exploitation of (...)
