This is a moment of reversals and remakings. Which countries are so well ‘developed’ that they can tell others how to live? Where is the model of political practice that satisfies our human need for recognition and participation and that produces the kind of society in which people really want to live? How can the visible transnational inequalities of wealth and poverty and inequalities of opportunities for education and employment continue year or year? From where will the vision and the statesmanship emerge to offer alternative practices and can the new forms of political organization produce the desperately-needed solutions? New lines of division and of solidarity are opening up. It is the moment for the South to speak up loudly and perhaps to provide some of the analytic approaches and policy answers that the North has conspicuously failed to offer. Of course, we must acknowledge that we share one planet with its limited resources and what happens in one place affects the rest. Yet instead of searching for a singularity, a recognition of “many voices and many worlds” might be a more useful approach.
