Global Activism

By (author)Ruth Reitan

Comparing four of the largest global networks targeting the ‘neoliberal triumvirate’ of the World Bank, the IMF and the World Trade Organization:

  • the Jubilee anti-debt campaigners
  • Via Campesina peasant farmers
  • Our World Is Not For Sale
  • and the anarchistic Peoples’ Global Action.

Written by a scholar-activist, the book highlights that despite their diversity, these collective actors follow a similar globalizing path and that networks in which solidarity is based on a shared identity perceived as threatened by neoliberal change are gaining strength. Social forums are depicted as a fertile ground to strengthen networks and a common ground for cooperative action among them, but also a battleground over the future of the forum process, the global anti-neoliberal struggle, and ‘other possible worlds’ in the making. Global Activism will appeal to students and scholars interested in globalization, international relations, IPE and social movements.
