Democratising Global Governance:
The Challenges of the World Social Forum
This paper sums up the debate that took place during the two round tables organized by UNESCO within the first World Social Forum in Porto Alegre (25/30 January 2001). It starts with a discussion of national processes, by examining democracy and then governance at the national level. It first states a case for a "joint" governance based on a combination of stakeholder theory, which is derived from corporate governance, and of UNESCO's priorities in the field of governance. As an example, the paper investigates how governance can deviate from democracy in the East Asian model. Subsequently, the global dimension of the debate on democracy and governance is examined, first by identification of the characteristics and agents of democracy in the global setting, and then by allusion to the difficulties of transposing governance to the global level.
The governments of Europe, the United States, and Japan are unlikely to negotiate a social-democratic pattern of globalization – unless their hands are forced by a popular movement or a catastrophe, such as another Great Depression or ecological disaster
Occupy Wall Street's Got Beef with Big Food
They're protesting agribusinesses this Saturday at Zuccotti Park .
What goes into the mouths of the OWS movement has been getting just as much attention as what comes out of them. NY Post has criticized protesters for “eating like kings,” with daily menu items like salmon cakes with dill sauce, quinoa salad, and spaghetti Bolognese with roasted beets.
Of course, all this press means the “Zuccotti Cafe” has been attracting “professional homeless people and ex-cons” masquerading as protesters, just to get free food. A scaled down menu of PB & J sandwiches was devised to solve this problem while still feeding the masses, but maybe on Saturday protestors and freeloaders alike will be schooled on the virtues of local, organic, and sustainable food practices?

"Leftwingers" are responsible for our political system being corrupt and owned by big money interests? You'll have to explain that one, champ.
