Abstract

Many economists have depicted the unsustainability of the current global political economy. More than a decade after ‘the end of the global justice movement,’ does activism still play a role in reshaping political economy? Under which conditions can social movement activism mobilize economic struggles and inequalities – and which democratic and economic potential to transform societies can be found within (which form of) movements in times of austerity politics?
