Special Issue - Globalisations: Markets and Development
Thursday, April 9, 2015
We are pleased to announce the publication of a special issue of the journal Globalisations 12(3), May, 2015, titled Markets and Development: Civil Society, Citizens and the Politics of Neoliberalism.
This special issue brings together six contributions focused on the political relationship between citizens, civil society, and neoliberal development policy. The articles detail the complicated relationship between citizens, civil society, neoliberalism and late capitalism, addressing not only the often contradictory nature of capitalist expansion, marketisation, and the emplacement of market relations as a primary form of social organisation, but also the manifest ways in which citizens and civil society have been both the agential authority helping support this change in some instances and, on the other, the principal agents of resistance. Starting from this overarching question, each of the articles analyses specific contexts that explore the contested nature of civil society in relation to the constitution of neoliberalism and the world market more generally.
Information about the special issue is appended below. Further information can be found at: http://www.tandfonline.com/toc/rglo20/current
