Including the Excluded in Global Politics

¤ 21 March 2012
Translations: English (original) .

We still have a way to go before the planet is governed in a truly democratic way, with serious consideration of all the world’s different voices. What is behind their current exclusion? What kind of strategies can be implemented to move in the direction of their inclusion? Is this even possible? Building Global Democracy convened a 3-day workshop in Rio in April 2011 to explore these vital issues. Some 35 people—activists, policy makers, and researchers—from 24 countries all over the world offer us their proposals for countering the current exclusions.
