Deployment in Africa
Is another century for development possible?

World Social Forum  Mumbay ; January 2004

This presentation examines development prospects as they emerge at the beginning of the twenty-first century and the role of social thinking in the formulation of an alternative paradigm or programme that can reduce the gaps between regions of the world to a reasonable level. 
The starting point of the analysis is the nature of the link between socialism and development, two movements of ideas, systems and policies that would have emerged almost simultaneously in the nineteenth century, before declining in the second half of the twentieth century. The first section examines - at the national, continental and global levels - the question of whether a development opportunity exists or is assumed to exist. 
The second section returns to the problems of coherence between current responses and the current and future context, that of the twenty-first century. These responses have taken a new turn with the deployment of a systemic vision of weapons of mass destruction, to the detriment of any objective other than exclusive global domination. 
The third section outlines the steps to put development at the heart of the global agenda for the 21st century. By way of conclusion, the presentation discusses the role of social thinking and the Think Tanks that serve it, in the implementation of this paradigm, while within the UN, the reflection on the reform of the international system has just been launched.
