ABSTRACT: The anti-economic-globalization movement appeared in a time in which the world was suffering big changes in its organization. This paper is a historical approach to the historical context and the origins, development, vindications, action repertoires and subsequent influence of this social movements in further social movements and politics. First of all there is a historical approach to the main characteristics of the time in which the movement develops its actions, in which we define neoliberalism and globalization as the two main processes that marked the development of the Present Time. After that we make an approach to the history of New Social Movements. We then study the anti-economic-globalization movements and its development from 1988 to the first decade of the twenty first century, dividing the main periods of action and putting special emphasis in the differentiation of the two main branches of the movements and the actions taken between the demonstrations of Seattle in 1999 and Geneva in 2001 and the organization of the First World Social Forum in Porto Alegre in 2001. Finally we conclude the paper writing about the further influence of the Anti-economic-globalization movement in further global politics.
