Call for Submission of Articles to Journal of World-Systems Research.

Global crisis deepens. More civil society activism predicted.
More and more social movements will be addressing the growing inequality and discontent. That was the conviction of Lauren Langman, a member of Global Studies Association, who was animating a debate at the World Social Forum in Tunis. He has predicted a growing civil society activism as the global economic crisis deepens. He said the crisis now was not merely economic, but social, with a growing number of people being marginalised, political, with leaders unable to prescribe solutions for those mostly affected, and also cultural.
