  1. Alter-globalization (also known as alternative globalization or alter-mundialization—from the French alter-mondialisation—and overlapping with the global justice movement) is a social movement whose proponents support global cooperation and interaction, but oppose what they describe as the negative effects of economic globalization, considering it to often work to the detriment of, or to ...

    Do English speakers refer to it as "altermondialization"? -- stewacide10:21, 19 Apr 2004 (UTC) 1. I would think it's more a synonym of the Global Justice Movement. Lapaz 1.1. It's more commonly known and described, say by the BBC , as anti-capitalism or anti-globalisation, but that is discouraged as a name because it suggests this movement's only defining characteristic is what it opposes. You might think that is a telling point - I couldn't possibly comment.

    I made the following changes for the stated reasons: 1) Changed: 1. The term is a positive distinction from the more widely-used and negative word 'anti-globalization'. to: 1. The term is considered distinct from the more widely-used word 'anti-globalization', which is thought to be pejorative by members of the movement. Calling one term "positive" and another "negative" because some people don't like it is POV. The new version keeps the content, without POV issues. 2) Changed "demands" to the more neutral "advocates" in the first sentence. 3) Changed: 1. It mainly opposes the way international institutions (such as the WTO, the IMF, and the World Bank) work towards First World economic interests. to: 1. The movement mainly opposes the way it believes that international institutions (such as the WTO, the IMF, and the World Bank) work towards First World economic interests. 1. 1.1. The word "belief", notwithstanding NPOV policy, is as POV as the previous sentence. Why? Because a beli...

    The first few paragraphs had some repetition which occurred during the merging of two ex-articles. It may need some refactoring. Cheers. – Kaihsu13:31, 11 October 2005 (UTC)

    Clean-up tag because the article repeats itself several times. It could be much more shorter and precise. Beside, it certainly shouldn't be merged with anti-globalization, since, as the Global Justice Movement, it is an alternative term which aims at not being classified by the dominant ideology as proponents of national sovereignty. It is not true that most "anti-globalization" are "alter-globalization", if (and only if) one includes in the anti-globalization category nationalist parties opposed to globalization and to international law. However, I do wonder if this article couldn't be merged with the Global Justice Movement, which seems to be the English version of an alternate expression to the "anti-globalization" tag which has been put on opponents to neoliberalism. Lapaz19:52, 5 February 2006 (UTC) Just to give you a view from France: "altermondialisme" is the union of diverse movements (associations, NGOs, political parties, etc) such as ecologist movements, anarchist movemen...

    I have never heard the words "alter-globalization" or "altermondialism" used in English. I would expect that if it is used at all, it is used either as a self-conscious Gallicism or an explicit French loanword (with French pronunciation). What do people think of the idea of moving this to "altermondialisme", treating it as a French word, and not attempting any sort of "innovative" anglicism? --Saforrest03:14, 11 March 2007 (UTC)

    There are already plenty issues with the title of this, but if it is to remain the same, then wouldn't a more french spelling make more sense? There are two ways to spell this in English, with 's' or 'z' and it's rather awkward that the choice has been made to not make it the one that agrees most with the French spelling. And with an 's' is English English, so European, which also makes more sense for an article on a European subject. DirkvdM18:24, 8 May 2007 (UTC)

    I have just reinstated this article after it was merged with anti-globalization. There doesn't seem to have been any discussion on the matter, and as the two movements are distinct, I felt that it was important to keep the pages separate. I noticed on this talk page that there was discussion (a long time ago) about the validity of this movement as warranting its own article. In the last couple of years much has been published from the social sciences about this movement, which can be verified with a quick check on google scholar. It is new, it is emerging, but it is an entity in its own right, and it is not the same thing as anti-globalization. If there are disagreements on this matter, I would appreciate a discussion. I realize that this is not the greatest article, and that it lacks sources. I would like to work on it but have very little time at the moment; hopefully in the very near future I will be able to. I also believe that as more is published about the movement, more usefu...

    With regards to the following sentence; "It is supposed to distinguish proponents of alter-globalization from different "anti-globalization" activists (those who are against any kind of globalization: nationalists, protectionists, communitarians, anarchists, etc.)." I do not understand why anarchism is listed here. Anarchism has always been a global movement, in fact it is anarchists who are the only consistent group proposing 'no borders', in itself a form of globalisation. I have as such deleted anarchists from this list.--Horses In The Sky (talk) 21:06, 21 October 2009 (UTC)

    This page is basically an apologia for "alter-globalization" without a balanced presentation of counter-arguments and other points of view. This is compounded by frequent use of un-attributed assertions and quotes, as well as frequent un-attributed use of weasel words such as "may have been," "believed to be" etc. The few citations are self-published by persons and groups close to the subject and favorable to it, rather than reliable third party sources. This article should be massively cleaned up or marked for deletion. (talk) 11:50, 14 December 2011 (UTC)

    This entire section needs work. It makes a great deal of assumptions around the Internet, based on an "ideal" Internet. It does not take censorship, accessibility, filtering (see filter bubble), or net neutrality into account. — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 07:06, 9 December 2012 (UTC)

    Supporters believe that by the late 20th century those they characterized as "ruling elites" sought to harness the expansion of world markets for their own interests; this combination of the Bretton Woods institutions, states, and multinational corporations has been called "globalization" or "globalization from above." In reaction, various social movements emerged to challenge their influence; these movements have been called "anti-globalization" or "globalization from below."

    Although over the past years more emphasis has been given to the construction of grassroots alternatives to (capitalist) globalization and the movement's largest and most visible mode of organizing remains mass decentralized campaigns of direct action and civil disobedience. This mode of organizing, sometimes under the banner of the Peoples' Global Actionnetwork, tries to tie the many disparate causes together into one global struggle.In many ways the process of organizing matters overall can be more important to activists than the avowed goals or achievements of any component of the movement. At corporate summits, the stated goal of most demonstrations is to stop the proceedings. Although the demonstrations rarely succeed in more than delaying or inconveniencing the actual summits, this motivates the mobilizations and gives them a visible, short-term purpose. This form of publicity is expensive in police time and the public purse. Rioting has occurred at some protests, for instance...

    The Annual Meetings of the International Monetary Fund (IMF) and the World Bank, that took place in West Berlin in 1988, saw strong protests that can be categorized as a precursor of the anti-globalization movement.One of the main and failed objectives (as it was to be so many times in the future) was to derail the meetings.


    A counter summit against G7 was organized in Paris in July 1989. The event was called "ça suffit comme ça" ("that is enough") and principally aimed at cancelling the debt contracted by southern countries. A demonstration gathered 10,000 people and an important concert was held in la Bastille square with 200 000 people. It was the first anti-G7 event, fourteen years before that of Washington. The main political consequence was that France took position to favor debt cancellation.


    The 50th anniversary of the IMF and the World Bank, which was celebrated in Madrid in October 1994, was the scene of a protest by an ad hoc coalition of what would later be called anti-globalization movements. Starting from the mid-1990s, Annual Meetings of the IMF and the World Bank Group have become center points for anti-globalization movement protests. They tried to drown the bankers' parties in noise from outside and held other public forms of protest under the motto "50 Years is Enough"...

    The global justice movement has been quite successful in achieving some of its key aims, according to academic and global justice movement activist David Graeber. For example, many countries no longer rely on IMF loans and so, by the mid-2000s, IMF lending was at its lowest share of world GDPsince the 1970s.

    The anti-globalization movement has been criticized by politicians, members of conservative think tanks, and many mainstream economists.
