Gregory Wilpert "is a German-American sociologist, who grew up in Germany and spent most of his adult life in the U.S. and most recently in Venezuela. He studied sociology at University of California San Diego (B.A. in 1988) and at Brandeis University (Ph.D. in 1993). His dissertation dealt with unemployment and political consciousness in East Germany following German unification. He lives in Caracas, Venezuela, where he had a Fulbright grant to teach and conduct research (2000-2001) on an integral-critical theory of social development. In his spare time, he practices Zen meditation and Aikido." [1]

"I currently work for the Rosa Luxemburg Foundation as their project coordinator in Venezuela." [2]

"[W]hat most people call civil society in the U.S. is little more than a civil society reflection of the larger economic forces present in society." [1]
