Debates about globalization are often characterized by rhetoric suggesting it is either ‘a good thing’ or ‘a bad thing’. ‘Ideological confrontations over globalization’ focuses on the assumptions behind these concepts and clashes. Market globalism is underpinned by neoliberal theories which suggested that globalization is both positive and inevitable. Justice globalism has sprung up around the world with various ‘Occupy’-style movements, while religious globalisms seek to mobilize a religious community imagined in global terms in defence of religious values and beliefs thought to be under attack by the forces of secularism and consumerism. Recently, there has been a rise in ‘anti-globalization’ voices in authority from populist movements.
