The following picture coverage is ought to give an impression of the events which took place at the World Social Forum (WSF) in Tunis from the 26th to the 31st of March in 2013.

In this regard, the hierarchical structures within the WSF and the production of western dominated knowledge raised awareness of many participants and were openly debated. For further information Hilde C. Stephansens article about “Decolonising the WSF” is recommended.
