Brandon Reid, Marshall Strong, & Tyler Gumina Globalization and Social Movements
Globalization from Below • Movement of Resistance • Represents Issues of People and Environment • Helps Smaller Groups Gain Influence or Power
Power of Social Movements • Withdrawal of Consent • Balance of Power & Power of the People • Linkage of Small and Specific Movements
Flaws of Social Movements • Utilization of Powers • Leadership / Imbalance of Power • Lack of Independence • Splits/Schisms and Declines
Discussion Questions • In what ways can globalization be seen as a positive movement? How can it be seen as negative? • Why are the connections between social movements so important? What can these movements do to maintain power and prevent failure? • Will globalization from below eventually become the same type of movement as globalization from above, rather than just a movement of resistance?
