This chapter argues that the geographical concepts of place and space are paramount to the understanding of social movement behaviours and, therefore, social movement networks. It considers the spatiality of global justice networks (GJNs) exploring how they prosecute political action across multiple geographical scales. It concludes by introducing the concept of convergence space with which to understand the dynamics of GJNs.

Keywords: global justice networks; social movement behaviours; social movement networks; spatiality; political action; convergence space
