distinction between several different ones. Thus Doyle and McEachern point out that there are those which are traditional nature conservation movements, and those which are more radical – concerned as they are with political ecology and anti-nuclear issues, and sometimes referred to as ‘New Left movements’.5 Some would quibble about the term New Left which is often associated with the anti-imperialist protest politics of the 1960s. ‘New Social movements’ more clearly describes movements which have arisen since the New Left, such as the anti-globalisation protests which seek

The European Union and social democratic identity

anti-European associations, anti-globalisation or alternative globalisation movements) who aspire to change the EU’s economic policy and institutional architecture. This problem of collective action is doubly strategic: there is no Winter Palace to occupy or surround in the European political system; there is no royal road for prompting and coordinating the mobilisation of actors with highly diverse sensibilities, cultures and interests. Naturally, this problem of collective action and coordination is common to all political parties and families. Nevertheless, it

The restructuring of work in Britain
Louise Amoore

legislative power and the failure to discuss or debate restructuring in a wider social forum has made the programme fragile in the sense that it is brittle and ‘inelastic’ (ILO, 1999a). Indeed, in response to a perceived lack of communication channels, some German companies with plants in Britain have developed employee representation arrangements to enable consultation with worker groups.10 The current vogue for ‘corporate social responsibility’, fuelled in part by the publicity surrounding the anti-globalisation protests, reveals that firms are aware that they take social

Design, activism and precarity
Ilaria Vanni

public discourse on labour-market flexibility — was of course a contributing aspect, as I will explain in the next section on precarity.6 The stirring of local activism as a result of local factors, such as the history of social movements in Italy, coupled with new energies and ideas coming from worldwide anti-globalisation protests, was another.7 When I started following San Precario through videos and images sent by friends involved in the events, websites and email lists, it was clear that contextual reasons alone could not explain why the saint had become so

Malek asks Justin why there are so many religions. Justin offers Marseilles as a comparison, but a Marseilles that would represent all of humanity: there are people from this neighbourhood or that, but they are still all

Mapping the nation
Sivamohan Valluvan

certain anti-migrant and anti-minority attitudes that 24 Valluvan The clamour of nationalism.indb 24 30-05-2019 12:06:09 introduction are discursively attributed to this constituency. An extensive matrix of populist left-wing motifs – for example, anti-establishment, anti-metropolitan elite, anti-globalisation – is in turn folded into a much broader, symbolically aggressive nationalist attachment to a notion of authentic white workingclass consciousness and history. Herein, in unpacking the left formations that have become susceptible to contemporary nationalist

The left and welfare state nationalism

speech, secularism, the rule of law and civility; the neoliberal – nation as mediator of economic enterprise and ‘homo economicus’; and the conservative – nation in nostalgic relation to the provincial, imperial, Christianist or rustic white. And, inevitably, the communitarian left too – nation in relation to the welfare state and broader antimarket, anti-globalisation sentiments. The ideological contouring of nationalism at the present moment calls upon all these various repertoires. This observation constitutes an important reminder to those with left or left

complex but pessimistic and disenchanted view of politics. Indeed, towards the end of his life, he became a prominent political figure in the anti-globalisation struggle. Bourdieu's theory of politics can be divided into three components: a general analysis of the social aspects of the political (le politique) and domination, a more specific analysis of politics (la politique), and the political practice that he developed at the end of A structural constructivist theory of politics and of European integration 23 his career.1 The first component elaborates chiefly on

self-​care may constitute a field of action that is not reducible to the proper distribution of individualised responsibility:  that care may take the form of a governmentalised demand does not mean that is unable to serve alternative, reparative ends.  182 182 Queer exceptions Care and self-​care: the vacuum cleaner Such possibilities are apparent in the work of ‘art and activism cell of one’ James Leadbitter, better known as the vacuum cleaner for his appearance in an anti-​globalisation intervention titled Cleaning Up After Capitalism (2003).

Dystopian performatives and vertigo aesthetics in popular theatre

, Philippe Pignarre and Isabelle Stengers took inspiration from the cry heard at the Seattle protests in 1999: ‘another 66 Science in performance world is possible’. The link that Stengers draws between anti-globalisation movements and her cosmopolitical philosophy of science is rooted in an impulse to speculate about the possibility of another world. With Pignarre she attempts to assemble diverse and sometimes divergent practices to revive a sense of futurity and speculation as a political practice: ‘propositions that attempt to transmit effectively – affectively – a
