The world just now is a disturbing place for anyonewho believes in peace, social justice, common goods,and ecological sanity. On the one hand, the traditionalinstitutions of democratic control are exhausted;weakened, if not destroyed, by an unconstrained globalmarket and superpower military ambition. On the other hand, the movements of mass protest, so visible on theeve of the invasion of Iraq that they were dubbed the“second superpower”, no longer provide the clear publicfocus that they once did.We believe, however, that diverse forms of resistance holdenormous potential for creating new forms of democracyand new institutions for social change. This social andcultural creativity often takes place beneath the media radar but it can sometimes surface unpredictably to disturb thecomplacent consensus. Our shared belief in the existenceof this only partially understood, including self-understood,potential for social transformation has led us to explore the innovations in political organisation that are underwayand the tools and insights that could take them further.We also share a curiosity in the transformative behaviour of people who frequently express common values – for example, as “ethical consumers”, vegetarians, file sharers,or participants in the social economy – but are not involvedin movement or political networks.
