Activity Two - Case Study

To be able to discuss this syllabus point successfully in the exam it is good to develop a case study of an anti-globalisation movement. I would suggest you focus on the World Trade Organisation protests on May day as we also this happening here in Geneva. When developing your case study consider the following points:

      • What are the main aims of the anti-globalisation movement?
      • How have has the movement put these aims in to practice?
      • How successful has the movement been?
