Conflictos globales, voces locales: Movilización y activismo en clave transnacional



Recent years have witnessed a surge in the number of contestations, networks and transnational organizations collectively referred to as the anti-globalization movement, the alter-globalization movement or the Global Solidarity Movement. They share a common rejection of the processes and consequences associated with neoliberal globalization. This book, edited by Alejandro Grimson and Sebastián Pereyra, begins with a review of the issues around which five contemporary global civil society movements were formed: debt relief; international trade rules and barriers; global taxation; the fight against corruption; and fair trade. With this starting point, the authors present the findings of their research in Argentina: the national-level impacts of the movements’ activities; and the features adopted by these global movements in Argentina to take context-specific developments and history into account.
