    It is great to learn that a bulletin of this kind is available
    to people who are researching and permanently holding discussions on organizations and social movements worldwide. I am most enthusiastic about joining LAOMS and most willing to receive the bulletin on a weekly basis. I am also sending this e-mail to Dr. Javier Aguilar García who presently is organizing the 5th edition of the Institutional Seminar 2016 on Crisis, Power and Social Movements in the Global World, at the Institute of Social Research-UNAM. Best wishes, Ph.D.Sociol. Alicia Eguiluz, Faculty of Political and Social Sciences-UNAM.
