– when it demands the impossible, in other words – that this perceived inevitability begins to be questioned. It is worthwhile noting here that at the end of his article responding to Stavrakakis’ critique, Zˇizˇek mentions the anti-globalisation movement as an example of a radical politics which is, precisely, doing the impossible – that is, challenging the global horizon of capitalism.36 ‘Miraculous events’ in politics do indeed happen. However, the problem I have with Zˇizˇek’s take on Lacanian politico-ethics is not this desire to demand the impossible, but rather

, by contemporary domestic conditions bearing apparent similarities with an earlier period of industrial conflict. Instead, as Constance Bantman and Dave Berry argue, global circumstances provide the context. The first is the late twentieth-century emergence of the anti-globalisation movement that deployed tactics from much earlier syndicalist and anarchist movements. Second, the climate instilled by the so-called ‘war on terror’ inaugurated by George W. Bush after the bombings of 11 September 2001 stimulated considerable debate about comparisons with earlier

modernity: critical reflections275 Occupy and anti-globalisation movements of the North, as well as the Arab Spring and labour movements in the Global South which, as I have shown, have actively shaped and resisted neoliberal globalisation and its associated authoritarianisms is indicative of a perception of globalisation which minimises the agency of the underdogs of the West and those of the Rest. Unsurprisingly, Bauman is more comfortable writing about refugees fleeing the Global South, as he does in Wasted Lives and Strangers at our Door (2016) than about those who

anti-globalisation and criticism of multinational companies, both of which allow this group of friends to remain Jewish but also to become national heroes. Whereas the opening credits of the original film situated very clearly where the action was to take place – showing a series of objects evoking the Sentier and its textile industry – the second film starts rather differently. It begins with a parody of the famous opening credits of James Bond films, replete with dancing women and dramatic theme tune. It even has Patrick pose as 007: suggesting that he and his

been characterised as anti-globalisation. Actually, many protesters advocate planetary consciousness and global interconnectedness based on concerns for human rights, ecology and a more equal division of world resources. There is little argument that transnational corporations now account for about a third of world economic output and two thirds of world trade (Spronk, 2002: 2). However, to accept the inevitably of some form of globalisation is still not necessarily to accept the inevitability of a model based on western M410 HARRIS TEXT.qxd 20/7/06 11:35 AM Page

is, however, an exception, since in his focus on the difficulty of asserting and maintaining clear racial divisions, he is able to challenge some of the certainties around racial categorisation (Young, 1995). 4 Contrary to popular belief, Marxist thought is still thriving, adapting itself to the changing political and economic circumstances, and is particularly in evidence in relation to the anti-globalisation movement. 5 I would, however, contest the assumption in Radhakrishnan’s statement that women’s concerns

and bureaucratic-administrative systemic imperatives. The current wave of anti-globalisation protest may well mount a more effective challenge to liberal democratic hegemony. It remains to be seen if this is in fact the case. 23 See Adorno, Minima Moralia , Frankfurt, Suhrkamp, 1951 . 24

downplay the importance of internal advocates for the safeguards (Bebbington et al. 2006; Davis 2004; Hall 2007). Bank ecologist Robert Goodland for example wrote most of the environmental policies and engaged with NGOs comprising TEANs to get the Bank to implement the safeguards such as the Indigenous Peoples policy (Rich 1994). External normative pressure remains a key factor explaining the Bank’s shift. A backlash against anti-globalisation protestors occurred after 11 September 2001, which arguably influenced general perceptions of TEANs (for a critical view of
