The Congress of the Humanities and Social Sciences is an annual gathering of scholars, students, policymakers and practitioners to exchange ideas and nurture groundbreaking research. This year’s Congress is being held at Concordia University in Montreal, with “connected understanding” as its overriding theme.

In 2010, Canada is playing an important role at the Social Summit on the Environment in Bolivia and the G8/20 meetings in Ontario. In this roundtable hosted by Judy Rebick, CAW Sam Gindin Chair in Social Justice and Democracy (Ryerson University), participants discuss the shape of the global movement for economic and environmental justice, focusing on the influence of Indigenous movements, and on the opportunities the G8 and G20 meetings hold for reshaping social movements. Ben Powless, a blogger and member of the Indigenous Environmental Network, was the panel’s first speaker.
