Throughout the world, people are increasingly seeing the capitalist system as the problem behind economic crises, rising inequality, social divisions, climate catastrophe, and war. As a result, the world is witnessing a wave of New Socialisms Rising. But what does socialism mean here and now? What do current conditions and the histories of both capitalism and socialism teach us in order to act, organize and build alternatives. Left Forum 2020 wants to celebrate, examine and debate the new socialisms and radical alternatives that are rising across the world in order to strengthen our struggles. This year’s conference aims to discuss socialism’s different forms and interpretations, the lessons we might learn from the past, and what potential socialist futures could mean or be. To this end, we encourage and seek ideas and proposals that address related interests and concerns of building and imagining present, possible and future socialisms.
