Goals and Activities[edit]

Third World Forum is composed of a network of intellectuals throughout Africa, Asia and Latin America, seeking to promote debate on contemporary processes and patterns of development. To this end, it conducts critical research on global capitalism, geo-politics, North-South relations, national and regional security, ecological degradation and formulates policy recommendations on alternatives. Its analyses and proposals are produced through interaction with social movements and civil society actors, with which it maintains a close connection.[2]
