<br>The association has an oberserver status to the transform! Europe-network. It is aimed at promoting cultural and political research on the main issues of a new critical and alternative culture. We contribute to the development and to the unity of the Italian Left. Our activity is guided by the “convergence in diversity” of the main currents of human emancipation: critical Marxism, social Christianity and the Theology of Liberation, critical and antagonistic enviromentalism, feminism, the culture of human rights etc.
