South Asian Activists in the Global Justice Movement (Hardcover) (Eva-Maria Hardtmann)
About this item
This work is a well-researched study of the last decades of the networks in the Global Justice Movement and World Social Forums which have increasingly been permeated by a neoliberal discourse. The author explores how these processes are locally experienced and expressed in the context of South Asia and Japan. It is an ethnographically rooted account of the two conflicting discourses, one among activists in the Global Justice Movement and the other emanating from the World Bank which have become intertwined locally within the same circle of activists. The work broadly discusses the links between these movements along with the transitional collaboration between Dalits in South Asia and Burakumin in Japan in the context of the relationship between the international NGOs, the UN and the World Bank. The author maintains that activism in such a scenario is no longer spatially limited but impinged upon by forces of globalisation, neo-liberalism, and glocalisation.
