Social Movements and Economic Integration in the Americas

> Center for Economic Justice, PDF (...)

"Social Movements and Economic Integration in the Americas" examines a rapidly growing phenomenon among civil society. This is cross-border social movements, which are educating, organizing, and advocating for new and equitable forms of regional economic integration, while pursuing social and economic change programs within each member country. The paper explores the reasons why this new model of organizing is gaining ground so steadily within today’s global political and economic context. It then explores the movements’ overarching characteristics, goals, focus areas, and programs. It looks at how the principles and forms of movement-building are evolving over time. The paper goes on to consider which of the networks’ needs are most strategic and pressing. Lastly, "Social Movements and Economic Integration in the Americas" describes nine of the most significant inter-American movements, and the work of each relative to international trade and financial policy.  read
