Welcome to South Asia Social Forum Bangladesh

South Asia Social Forum Bangladesh is a process of World Social Forum. The event was initially planned by the WSF International Expansion Committee (IEC) in its Morocco meeting to focus on Democracy. The process of organizing the event in Bangladesh is carried out by the collective initiative of individuals and organizations
The initiators of the process have a common ground of opposing the neoclassical constructions of inequality, discrimination, violence and violations embodied in capitalism. The process of organizing the South Asia Social Forum in Bangladesh is taken ahead by an open body.
All the individuals and organizations participating in the process of preparation  are considered as members of this open body. The body involves members from Bangladesh and other South Asian nations and states. Anyone who participates in the on-going preparatory process, in meetings organized by Organisation committee or self organized prearation activities  and upholds the WSF Charter of Principles is automatically considered as an organizing member.

What the World Social Forum is?

The World Social Forum is an open meeting place where social movements, networks, NGOs and other civil society organizations opposed to neo-liberalism and a world dominated by capital or by any form of imperialism come together to pursue their thinking, to debate ideas democratically, for formulate proposals, share their experiences freely and network for effective action. Since the first world encounter in 2001, it has taken the form of a permanent world process seeking and building alternatives to neo-liberal policies. This definition is in its WSF Charter of Principles , the WSF’s guiding document.

The World Social Forum is also characterized by plurality and diversity, is non-confessional, non-governmental and non-party. It proposes to facilitate decentralized coordination and networking among organizations engaged in concrete action towards building another world, at any level from the local to the international, but it does not intend to be a body representing world civil society. The World Social Forum is not a group nor an organization
See here the Guiding principes for organizing a wsf event - the other guiding document of WSF.
