The Other ‘No Globals’: Right-wing Discourses on Globalization

Show Summary Details


The extreme right and globalization are repeatedly associated in the scientific debate. Whereas left-wingers have often been characterized as ‘new globals’ who seek to advance an alternative type of globalization, right-wingers emerge in chapter 9 as the true ‘no globals’, resisting any aspect of globalization as a threat to the purity of the race and the well-being of the nation. The chapter addresses the ways the issue of globalization is addressed by the extreme right in its various aspects, from the global(ized) economic system, to international migration and the emergence of multicultural societies, to the threat of globalization for traditional values as well as societal, cultural, and political changes in the nation-states themselves.
