Respatializing Rights Under Neoliberalism

(p.206) 6. Locality and Nation
Stanford University Press

This chapter looks at the different changes in the practices and idioms of fisher politics during the 1990s, which was a decade characterized by neoliberal reforms. It is also during this decade that an oppositional call for a robust national territorial sovereignty and state-led neoliberal deterritorialization indicated a transition in both political organizing and economic policy. This chapter tries to dig up more information aside from the simple conflict between the transnational capital and the sovereign nation and narrates two routes of localization and nationalization. It also provides an argument for a better understanding of the neoliberalism of the 1990s.

Keywords:   fisher politics, neoliberal reforms, national territorial sovereignty, neoliberal deterritorialization, political organizing, economic policy, transnational capital, sovereign nation, localization, nationalization
