Description - Urban Movements in a Globalising World by Pierre Hamel

Urban social movements have traditionally been seen as being preoccupied with local issues, and as a result have been marginalised in the wider study of social movements. However, the increasing globalisation of cities, the international flows of people, money and policy, have meant that the local issues urban movements engage with are becoming less parochial and more global. This collection deals with the transformation of urban movements in these new social, economic and political environments. The book is divided into three sections. The first focuses on the new repertoire of collective action in different urban settings. In the second section, the emphasis is on the economic impact of globalisation on social life and how urban movements have been trying to cope with these changes. The third section assesses the opportunities offered to movements by the economic and social transformations of globalisation. Kim Viborg Andersen; Joan A.
