Dalits in the World Social Forums

(p.102) Chapter Five Dalits in the World Social Forums
South Asian Activists in the Global Justice Movement

Eva-Maria Hardtmann

Oxford University Press

Chapter 5 provides ethnography from the World Social Forums in Mumbai, India (2004), Nairobi, Kenya (2007), and from Belèm, Brazil (2009), and the involvement of Dalit activists in these large events. The World Social Forum has been held only once in Asia, but regional social forums have been organized in South Asia, and in 2011 a South Asia Social Forum was arranged in Dhaka, Bangladesh. During this forum it became clear that not only two contradictory worldviews were present at the forum, but also that South Asia was marginalized in the GJM and the World Social Forum process. The World Social Forum’s International Council meeting was held in connection with, and just following this regional forum in Dhaka in 2011. The World Social Forum International Council has been a controversial body, and the chapter discusses some of the debates from the meeting in Dhaka.
