About this book

Each year, the Swiss mountain resort Davos is host to the meetings of the World Economic Forum. In 1999, a counter-Davos gathering brought together on the same date dissident social movements from across five continents: Brazil's Landless People's Movement; the Trade Union Congress of South Korea; the National Peasant Federation of Burkina Faso; the Quebec Women's Movement and the French Movement of the Unemployed. They met with a number of eminent economists, sociologists, historians and political scientists, and this book covers their discussions.
