This congress event invites participants to come together to address the reality that a functioning democratic system cannot exist with the neoliberal paradigm.

How can this message be better communicated  with academic and activist communities? What can the societiesof the West and Eastern Europe learn from cultures and communities of the South?

What role can we play in waking each other up to a reality beyond the corrupt illusions of capitalism? What is the shape and form of the movement that can both resist in the present and reframe the future.
