Abstract
‘Anti-globalism’ usually refers to a number of social movements that resist the worldwide processes of so-called ‘globalization’. Their protest concerns the neoliberal economic reforms and the serious social, cultural and ecological impact on the lives of millions of individuals, most often but not exclusively in the South. The protest actions against the 1999 Seattle meeting of the World Trade Organisation are generally considered as the starting point of this new social movement . However, it is rooted in other social movements such as those working for the third world or for the environment. Though it is a recent phenomenon, social sciences have already paid serious research attention to the movement. This book brings together a number of contributions that aim to survey the research on the anti-globalization movement. The book also touches upon an issue that will become ever more important in the development of the anti-globalization movement of the coming years, namely its position on ‘global governance’. The book has as its central topic the anti-globalization movement and covers issues such as the records of the movement, surveys of scientific research on the movement and the strategic views from within the movement on their own past, present and future. Covered topics: How and where to find historical documentation on the movement ; a survey of the history of the movement ; a social analysis of the movement ; the key topics of the movement in a wider philosophical context ; viewpoints of actors in the movement, i.e. Oxfam, the World Social Forum, the radical left and the European and international trade union movement.
