This chapter argues that despite the inevitable continuation of political and ideological conflict, globalisation discourse contained a core set of meanings; all actors which employed it, especially in a positive sense, to articulate their perspective necessarily imported these meanings into their ideologies. Moreover, these meanings were not dependent on any particular ideological tradition, including neoliberalism. Although the globalisation concept was, at least to some extent, novel and independent, it has meanings that by necessity favoured some policy positions on foreign economic policy in British politics over others. The chapter summarises the empirical chapters, before presenting in detail six major themes and analytical issues which arise from this study. They are: definitions of globalisation, the status of neoliberalism, images of the state, images of spatiality and the status of universalism, globalisation discourse across the left/right spectrum, and whether globalisation is itself an ideology.

Keywords:   foreign economic policy, British politics, globalisation, neoliberalism, universalism
