The Role of Participation, Organizational Democracy and Self-Management in the Futures We Want. Part II
Language: English, French and Spanish
The “Futures we want” should foster Participation, Organizational Democracy and Self-Management. Most often than not however, the responses to the crisis have, on the contrary, recently entailed in many countries unpopular austerity measures decided in a top down and technocratic manner that have threatened existing social and political participative schemes. Thus participation and organizational democracy seem to be shrinking rather than increasing at the global level. Increasing inequality, oppression, and ecological destruction have also brought about protests and struggles for a better world.
How are different forces positioned to shape futures? What visions for alternative futures are imaginable, desirable, and achievable that include democracy and participation at all levels? What can we learn from comparing struggles in different countries and settings? What are viable roadmaps for participative social transformation?
This session is the second part of this theme with a focus on how the Futures we want can include an increased role for democracy and participation at all levels, from the workplace to the political sphere.
