World Social Forum 2013 in Tunis
Every other year, people from all over the world gather during the World Social Forum to discuss global justice. This year, the World Social Forum took place in Tunis from April 26 to 30, 2013. Thus, for the first time the Arab World hosted the Forum - a conscious decision to bring the WSF to Tunisia, the origin of the "Arab Spring". The WSF's theme was "Dignity" and for five days people discussed, argued, rallied and danced. In Tunis, the Friedrich-Ebert-Stiftung - traditionally one of the most important supporters of the WSF - participated with a series of own workshops, conferences and film screenings.
