120 years after Marx's death, his work still constitutes a valuable treasure
for humankind. When Engels referred to Karl Marx's work as "a guide for
action",
he was acknowledging that the Marxist legacy constitutes something alive,
which
evolves and is enriched through others' thought, work and experience.

This international conference aism to apply Marx's work for understanding
the
current world order whilst envisioning innovative and revolutionary ways to
define a new and more equitable world. Those attending the conference will
contribute
to the progressive thought of the 21st century and will become conscious  of
the need for a daily revolutionary practice, which is both a foundation and
a result of the unique relationship between dialectics and science. The
conference
invites those individuals and organisations considering the individuals'
self-realization
as premise and result of social progress.

Contributions are sought in the form of papers on the themes listed below:

Theme 1: Limits and contradictions of current capitalist thought and the new
forms of revolutionary action
Theme 2: Limits and contradictions of the socialist experiences during the
20st
century; elements for improving the socialist-freeing paradigm.

Within these themes, a range of different topics such as the Communist
Revolution,
Contemporary Syndicates Movements, Under-development and Capitalism,
Globalisation
and Sustainable DEvelopment, Latin America and the United States, Property
and
Social Development etc, are expected to be covered.

Submission of contributions (Abstract and Synopsis of papers):31 January
2003.
