Dakar launches a public consultation on the thematic axes for the 2011 edition


The International Council of the World Social Forum and the African Social Forum and the Senegalese Organizing Committee launch a public consultation until September 10th to finalize the thematic axes of the centralized edition of the WSF, to be held in Dakar, Senegal, on February 06-11 2011.

Dakar World Social Forum: resistance and struggle of African peoples

The World Social Forum returns to Africa in 2011. After Nairobi (Kenya), the Senegalese capital Dakar will host the centralized edition on February 06th to 11th 2011, this time differently from previous years, when it was held during the Economic Forum in Davos. Focusing on the history of resistance and struggle of African peoples, the 2011 WSF should find the necessary interface with global struggles and strategies that are common with those of Africa, the South and the rest of the world.
