Show Summary Details


This chapter places global justice networks (GJNs) in grounded contexts by examining their operational logics and strategies. By examining network relationality and power dynamics, it shows that contrary to claims that networks operate through horizontality, elements of both horizontal and vertical operational logics are present within the practices of networking. It examines how GJNs attempt to forge transnational ‘mutual’ solidarities between their participant movements. It also argues that the operation of GJNs requires ‘networking vectors’ to further the process of communication, information-sharing and interaction within grassroots communities.

Keywords: global justice networks; operational logics; network relationality; power dynamics; grassroots communities; networking vectors
