In recent years a new anti-globalisation or anti-corporatist movement has been gaining strength and visibility. What is the meaning of this new activism? How does it relate to other forms of activism and movements based on issues such as environmental degradation or inequalities based on gender, race, class and sexual identity. What are the social and political forces that are shaping activism in a contemporary global context? These questions and others will be addressed in this subject through the application of sociological theories of social movements and collective action.
