Perrons, D. and Posocco, Silvia (2009) Globalising failures. Geoforum 40 (2), pp. 131-135. ISSN 0016-7185.
In this introduction and special issue we examine the ideas of ‘globalisation’ and ‘failure’ as concept metaphors that encapsulate contemporary processes of social, economic and political transformation. Through an emphasis on situated understandings, this collection explores the implications and consequences of attributions of failure in specific contexts. A focus on ‘failure’ opens up key trajectories of globalising processes and “actually existing neoliberalisms” [Brenner, N., Theodore, N., 2002. Cities and the geographies of ‘‘actually existing neoliberalism”. Antipode 34 (3), 349–379] to critical scrutiny, revealing a plurality of interpretations and contributing to a critical interrogation of globalisation discourse.
