Abstract: From Introduction: "Taking into account this broader context of globalisation and its different dimensions, and the political opportunity structures that emerged from a wider world social mobilisation, this paper will focus the second level of this democracy deficit. We adopt the following assumption: transnational networks of social movements are the expression of a new social subject and have shifted their scale of political intervention since the 1990's in order to render their fight for social justice politically pertinent. Global social justice has become the motto of transnational social movements in a world politics where political decisions are not any more exclusively reliable on nation-states. In pursuance of developing this assumption, we will approach the discussion in two general parts: firstly, we will present a theoretical and methodological approach for analysing transnational social movements; secondly, we will look into the World Social Forum as one of their key political expressions."
