Abstract

This article reveals the contradictions of globalization as an attribute of the final stage of late capitalism. Primary attention is paid to the study of alternatives to the existing hegemonic model of economic and cultural integration—transnational corporations, states claiming world hegemony, and international institutions that ensure the hegemony of the first and second (NATO, IMF, World Bank, etc.). As the most promising and progressive alternative, the author considers the alter-globalization movement, which opposes not only the global hegemony of capital, but also the isolation of national geopolitical and economic systems (anti-globalism). The author provides a systematization of the main forms and institutions of the alter-globalization movement, in particular, world, continental and regional social forums, counter-summits, global campaigns (for example, against the war of the United States and its allies in Iraq), etc. The chapter also considers the contradictions of the alter-globalization movement (between latitude and the pluralism of alter-globalist networks, on the one hand, and the organizational and political weakness of the movement; between the center-left and the left wing, etc.). The author also analyzes the main positive features of the alter-globalization movement, the key points of which are its emphasis on the need to move towards new institutions of world community (general accessibility of education, healthcare, etc., broad powers of social movements and other institutions of civil society, reduction of social inequality, etc.). The article concludes with a description of the positive program of the alter-globalization movement and a description of its features in Russia.
