It was democracy in action, December 17-19, 2008, when more than 300 participants, academics, grass roots workers, and persons living in extreme poverty, met for a colloquium at the Political Science Faculty in Paris, France.

Academics and grass roots workers were meeting and had the intuition that in face of such violence the thought of Joseph Wresinski could be a great resource both then and for the future.
Several years in preparation in several countries, and as much by researchers as by persons living in poverty, this colloquium made possible a genuine encounter between the university world and the Fourth World, a true merging of knowledge.
