South Asian Activists in the Global Justice Movement

Eva-Maria Hardtmann

  • During the last decade a large number of volumes have been written about the Global Justice Movement and the Occupy movement. However, few of these have been based on fieldwork and even fewer focused on transnational activism in South Asia and Japan. This book aims to bridge this gap.
  • This volume contributes to the discussion about the Global Justice Movement and the World Social Forum process by providing ethnographical examples from South Asia and Japan.
  • It provides a unique perspective on traditions of protest, ethics, organizational forms and visions among activists than is usually presented in the literature on the Global Justice Movement, which to a large extent is focused on Latin America, the US and Europe.
