Mailing list for discussion about the World Social Forum (NOW CLOSED, as of May 2017)

This project, a listserve named ‘WSFDiscuss’, was initiated in 2005 by CACIM, in collaboration with what was then called the ‘EIOS Collective’ (‘Explorations in Open Space’), to promote open debate and democracy in terms of views about and information on the World Social Forum and its politics.

Over the years, WSFDiscuss became a quite popular list, with subscribers from many parts of the world and with extensive discussion of and posting on the World Social Forum, and also, increasingly from about 2008 on, a wide range of postings on other related social and political developments, including on the worldwide irruptions of anti-authoritarian and pro-democracy movements from 2011 on.

In order to reflect the wider landscape of the posting and discussions that have been taking place on the list, and also to address severe technical problems we were facing, WSFDiscuss has now, in 2017, been closed, and has been succeeded on a fresh server with a new list, ‘World Social Movement Discuss’, or WSMDiscuss.

Please subscribe to the revised and refreshed list World Social Movement Discuss by sending an empty mail to or by visiting the WorldSocialMovement-Discuss? list information page at (external link)

The archives of WSFDiscuss however, from 2005 through to early May 2017, remain available @ (external link)
