The article discusses the major structural characteristics of the anti-globalization movement. It briefly examines the relationships between the anti-globalization movement and another important global-scale social movement, that of the international environmental movement. It also explores the possible effects that the anti-globalization movement might have on various transnational actors and institutions of globalization, and on selected nation-states. Analyses of the author regarding the matter are presented.
