It’s time again to serve you our monthly tonic of the CODESRIA Newsletter. It is a typical case of “Durban here we come” as CODESRIA anchored on three great events in the city. The world Social Science Forum has just ended its conference in Durban South Africa with more than a thousand participants attending from 84 different countries. Here we provide you with the highlights of the deliberations centred around the theme of the conference: Transforming Global Relations for a Just World. As you well know CODESRIA has played key roles in the WSSF since its inception. The 8th South-South Institute with the theme "Inequality and Social Justice: Perspectives from the South” also held back to back in Durban alongside the WSSF by a collaboration University of KwaZulu Natal, CODESRIA and CLACSO. Also, the maiden institute on ‘Economic Justice Institute: Economic Justice in Africa: Globalization, the State and the Civil Society” also held in Durban during the WSSF. Finally, we wish to introduce to you our new Deputy Executive Secretary, Professor Sozinho Francisco Matsinhe. He is an erudie language scholar. Enjoy your reading.
