The issue discusses the challenges and opportunities faced by organizations and social moviments in their work
The 11th edition of Sur Journal is already available for query and download. This issue of the journal was developed in collaboration with the International Network for Economic, Social, and Cultural Rights (ESCR-Net).
Four of the articles published in this issue are revised versions of documents produced for the International Strategy Meeting on Economic, Social, and Cultural Rights and the ESCR-Net General Assembly held in Kenya, December 2008. Thus, we are presenting a dossier in this issue that discusses which challenges and opportunities organizations and social movements fighting for global social rights are facing in certain areas related to economic, social and cultural rights work, their main strategies, and a catalogue of recommendations for future action.
Completing this issue of the Journal are five articles, on diverse subjects, and an interview. For the first time, and at the request of the event?s participants, a brief account of the IX International Human Rights Colloquium is also included in the Sur Journal. Furthermore, during the IX Colloquium, an interview was conducted with Rindai Chipfunde-Vava, director of the Zimbabwe Election Support Network (ZESN), that ends this issue of the Sur Journal.
