Abstract (summary)

There are a number of distinguishing features that mark globalization as a historically significant period. This includes changes in technology which allow for greater levels of economic integration and the international division of labor. At the same time, global communication networks enhance the amount of transnational coordination between social movements. This project details the formation of the anti-globalization network through the history of biodiversity politics. It explores networks in terms of social and technological transformation, but also as distributive phenomenon with unique properties. The research also speculates on the political dynamics of networks.
