Placed within the broad fields of international relations and international political economy, this book specifically focuses upon the conceptual and strategic debates concerning the relationship between social movements and the politics of globalization. Outlining current theories concerning the activity and interaction of social movements and globalization, Watson reconsiders this debate by mapping an alternative conceptual and strategic account of the politics of resistance to globalization. Considering the responses of neoliberal institutions, the book also assesses the implications of struggles for understanding the site and nature of political power and authority in the global political economy.
