A new global ‘movement’ has arisen over the past decade to confront global capitalism. The emergence of what has been termed the global justice movement (GJM) is the most significant development in counter-systemic politics since the end of the Cold War. This chapter outlines the contours of this phenomenon before addressing the character of global justice networks in more detail in subsequent chapters. First, it considers the rise of neoliberalism as a global economic project. Second, it traces the genesis of the international resistance against this project including some of the key events, for example, the 1994 declaration of the Zapatistas against the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA) and the subsequent emergence of European and World Social Forums. Third, the chapter considers some of the broad characteristics of this resistance. The chapter ends with an outline of subsequent chapters.
