Example text

Now, Melucci’s framework does not pay sustained attention to the structures and relations of power through which some movement identities become dominant over others. Most approaches to social movements, and most activists, focus rather on the power structures in the wider social context, which may enable effective mobilisation or present a target. Movements themselves are typically presented as somehow outside or below Constructing ‘the anti-globalisation movement’ 23 power: as intrinsically counter-hegemonic or emancipatory; as part of a power-free, global civil society; or as new movements unconcerned with claiming power.

This is for epistemological 34 Catherine Eschle as well as political reasons: the diverse voices within the movement generate distinctive insights about the operations of power and resistance in different contexts, and democratic dialogue between those voices needs to be encouraged to gain a fuller picture of reality and to build stronger oppositional struggles (Collins 2000).

The group’s newsletters then target the exploitative practices of particular multinational corporations as well as drawing attention to problems of debt and financial restructuring. Finally, the Peoples’ Global Action manifesto (1998) articulates opposition to the extension of the role of ‘capital, with the help of international agencies’ and trade agreements. There are important resonances here with academic depictions of globalisation. I have argued elsewhere that an ‘economic-homogenisation’ model of globalisation is becoming increasingly dominant, in both academic and popular usage, which focuses attention on the increased integration of the global economy and its homogenising effects on state policy and culture (Eschle 2004; see also Robertson and Khondker 1998).
