Recognition in the Struggle against Global Injustice

Recognition in the Struggle against Global Injustice

(p.175) 10 Recognition in the Struggle against Global Injustice
Recognition and Global Politics

Greta Fowler Snyder

Manchester University Press

Far from being necessarily divisive, recognition is integral to the construction of effective global movements against injustice. I highlight three different sites at which the politics of recognition has important roles to play: within progressive movements, between progressive movements and by progressive movements on the ‘global stage’. At these different sites, I argue, recognition politics serves both integrative and performative functions. By identifying the sites at which recognition can contribute to global struggles and explaining the functions recognition serves, I add to our understanding of ‘regimes of recognition’, offer a new perspective on the nature of and prerequisites for the recognition encounter, and illuminate the importance as well as the limitations of political institutions like the World Social Forum and campaigns like the anti-War protests of 2003.

Keywords:   integrative recognition, performative recognition, World Social Forum, Anti-War Protests of 2003
