The Global Justice Movement and Critique of Free Trade

As the fourth World Social Forum takes place in India with the critique of free trade as a major theme, does this show how desperation can be transformed into hope and purpose, or is the 'movement of movements' losing its dynamism by taking a dogmatic and ultimately self-defeating turn?

The Centre for the Study of Global Governance at the London School of Economics and Political Science (LSE) hosts a debate on The Global Justice Movement and Critique of Free Trade on Monday 26 January.

Speakers are:

  • Adam Lent, editor of the Fabian Global Forum
  • Yahia Said, research officer at Centre for the Study of Global Governance, LSE
  • Dr Razeen Sally, senior lecturer in international political economy, LSE
  • Stewart Wallis, director of the New Economics Foundation

Professor Lord Desai will chair the debate which is free and open to all with no ticket required.

The Global Justice Movement and Critique of Free Trade is on Monday 26 January at 6.30pm in the Hong Kong Theatre, Clement House, LSE, Aldwych, London WC2A.
