Bond, Patrick (2009)  The World Social Forum. Third Sector Research Chapter 23: 1-12.

As a 5-day celebration of workshops and political/cultural events devoted to the idea that “AnotherWorld Is Possible,” not only the periodic global meetings of theWorld Social Forum (WSF) are a crucial vehicle for building a more coherent progressive civil society, but also the WSF has become the venue for national regroupment of progressives in many countries, and some regions – especially Europe – have generated sustained interest in Social Forum organizing. However, notwithstanding the attractiveness of the transnational network form behind the civil society movements that make up the WSF, major contradictions continue to hamper its growth and sustainability. Ideological convergence has not proceeded at the pace many participants had hoped for, and the future of the world event and many local processes associated with it remain unclear.
