Description

"Christophe Aguiton & Dominique Cardon recount the history of WSF and the different ways it has organized itself, reflecting the tensions that have risen as a result of its commitment to consensus-decision making, horizontal participation, to be both an open space and a forum for action, refusal to allow anyone to represent WSF. Critiques have forced WSF to change and led to instability, but its adaptability suggests that it can adapt to future challenges."
