Associate Professor James Goodman


James Goodman conducts research into socio-political change and climate justice. He draws from a disciplinary background in political sociology, international relations, political economy and political geography, and has published more than 12 books. He is an Associate Professor in Social and Political Sciences at the Faculty of Arts and Social Sciences at UTS (FASS), where he has been based since 1996. In 2007 he was one of the three co-founders of the Research Centre in Cosmopolitan Civil Societies. and he remains editor of the CCS Journal, now in its ninth year. He has supervised 17 doctoral students, mainly in the area of NGOs and international politics, and coordinates undergraduate subjects, including the SPS subject ‘Politics, Ideologies and Beliefs’. In 2017, with six other academics, he initiated a new Climate Justice Centre in the Faculty.

James Goodman’s current publications on climate change include a survey of scholarship on climate change and social movements, for the Oxford Research Encyclopedia of Climate Science, published in 2017, available open access [DOI: 10.1093/acrefore/9780190228620.013.340]. In 2016 he co-edited a Special Issue with the journal Energy Policy, on ‘Coal, Climate and Development’, with sixteen refereed papers (draft papers at http://coalrush.net). He is coauthor of Climate Upsurge: An Ethnography of Climate Movement Politics, with Stuart Rosewarne and Rebecca Pearse (Routledge, 2014). The book reflected on the climate movement that emerged between 2006 and 2010. His book on the policy ideas of the global justice movement, Justice Globalism: Ideology, Crises, Policy (Sage, 2013), also reflected on issues of global climate politics. Co-authored with Manfred Sager and Erin Wilson, the book is described by Prof. James H. Mittelman as a ‘seminal exploration’, and by Prof. Saskia Sassen as ‘a brilliant systematic and empirically-based analysis’.

In related work he has focused on wider dynamics of global management and social movements, with a co-edited book, Crisis, movement, management: globalising dynamics (Routledge, 2014; also published as an issue of Globalizations). In 2015 he published a book on developments in capitalist informationalism, Disorder and the Disinformation Society, co-authored with Francesca Da Rimini, Jon Marshall and Didar Zowghi (also with Routledge). Similar themes were investigated in a co-edited Special Issue of the Global Networks journal, on ‘Networks of Disorder’, also with Jon Marshall.

His other books, prior to 2013. centre on the politics of globalization, and include:  Nationalism and Global Solidarities: Alternative Projections to Neoliberal Globalisation (Routledge, 2007); Nature’s Revenge: Reclaiming Sustainability in an Age of Corporate Globalism (Broadview, 2006); Protest and Globalisation: Prospects for Transnational Solidarity (Pluto, 2002); Moving Mountains: Communities confront Mining and Globalisation (Zed, 2002); and Stopping a Juggernaut: Public Interests versus the Multilateral Agreement on Investment (Pluto, 2000). He is a regular contributor to academic journals and book collections, and is responsible for a number of disciplinary overviews for academic encyclopedias and handbooks, including the Sage Handbook on Globalisation and the International Studies Association Compendium.

Funded projects since 2001 include: ‘The Coal Rush and Beyond: Climate Change, Coal Reliance and Contested Futures’, ARC Discovery CI(1) with Devleena Ghosh, Tom Morton, Linda Connor and Stuart Rosewarne  (2014-17); ‘The Coal Rush, Comparative Perspectives’, Australian Academy of the Social Sciences Workshop 2013; ‘Chaos, Technology, Global Administration and Daily Life’, ARC Discovery, CI(1) with Jon Marshall and Didar Zowghi (2008–13); ‘Mapping Justice Globalism: Reassessing the Ideological Landscape of the 21st Century’, ARC Discovery with Manfred Steger, CI(1), and Erin Wilson (2009–12); ‘Neo-liberalism globalism and its challengers: a comparative study of Canada, Australia, Mexico and Norway’, Canadian Social Science and Humanities Research Council, with 16 other academics (2001–2005).

View/Download from: UTS OPUS or Publisher's site
This book is the first general social analysis that seriously considers the daily experience of information disruption and software failure within contemporary Western society. Through an investigation of informationalism, defined as a contemporary form of capitalism, it describes the social processes producing informational disorder. While most social theory sees disorder as secondary, pathological or uninteresting, this book takes disordering processes as central to social life. The book engages with theories of information society which privilege information order, offering a strong counterpoint centred on "disinformation." Disorder and the Disinformation Society offers a practical agenda, arguing that difficulties in producing software are both inherent to the process of developing software and in the social dynamics of informationalism. It outlines the dynamics of software failure as they impinge on of information workers and on daily life, explores why computerized finance has become inherently self-disruptive, asks how digital enclosure and intellectual property create conflicts over cultural creativity and disrupt informational accuracy and scholarship, and reveals how social media can extend, but also distort, the development of social movements.

Are political activists connected to the global justice movement simplistically opposed to neoliberal globalization? Is their political vision 'incoherent' and their policy proposals 'nave' and 'superficial' as is often claimed by the mainstream media? Drawing on dozens of interviews and rich textual analyses involving nearly fifty global justice organizations linked to the World Social Forum, the authors of this pioneering study challenge this prevailing view. They present a compelling case that the global justice movement has actually fashioned a new political ideology with global reach: 'justice globalism'. Far from being incoherent, justice globalism possesses a rich and nuanced set of core concepts and powerful ideological claims. The book investigates how justice globalists respond to global financial crises, to escalating climate change, and to the global food crisis. It finds justice globalism generating new political agendas and campaigns to address these pressing problems. Justice globalism, the book concludes, has much to contribute to solving the serious global challenges of the 21st century. Justice Globalism will prove a stimulating read for undergraduate and graduate students in the social sciences and humanities who are taking courses on globalization, global studies and global justice
Rosewarne, S., Goodman, J. & Pearse, R. 2013, Climate action upsurge: The ethnography of climate movement politics.
View/Download from: UTS OPUS or Publisher's site
© 2014 Stuart Rosewarne, James Goodman and Rebecca Pearse. In the late 2000s climate action became a defining feature of the international political agenda. Evidence of global warming and accelerating greenhouse gas emissions created a new sense of urgency and, despite consensus on the need for action, the growing failure of international climate policy engendered new political space for social movements. By 2007 a 'climate justice' movement was surfacing and developing a strong critique of existing official climate policies and engaging in new forms of direct action to assert the need for reduced extraction and burning of fossil fuels. Climate Action Upsurge offers an insight into this important period in climate movement politics, drawing on the perspectives of activists who were directly engaged in the mobilisation process. Through the interpretation of these perspectives the book illustrates important lessons for the climate movement today. In developing its examination of the climate action upsurge, the book focuses on individual activists involved in direct action 'Climate Camps' in Australia, while drawing comparisons and highlighting links with climate campaigns in other locales. The book should be of interest to scholars and researchers in climate change, environmental sociology, politics, policy and activism.

View/Download from: Publisher's site
Even in the face of neoliberal globalization, nationalism remains a significant political force. The leading contributors to this new volume explore the extent to which nationalism can be a foundation for alternative solidarities. Against the axiom that with globalization 'all that is solid melts into air,' this anthology debates the extent to which different forms of solidarity remain viable - from the solidarities of local political groups to the solidarities of nationalism, internationalism and alternative globalisms. Organized into three sections, the book addresses the relationship between the contemporary formations of nationalism, globalism and solidarity movements: Part 1 offers a framework for understanding globalization and discusses the effect of globality on nationalism Part 2 addresses the logics of nationalisms in globalizing contexts: respectively, liberal nationalism, left nationalism, post-colonial nationalism, and revivals of nationalism Part 3 addresses issues of solidarity and integration in a world of nationalism and globalism, asking how differing forms of connectivity may be emerging, disrupting prevailing oppositions and relations, focusing on social movements and solidarity. Offering the first detailed study of the relationship between globalization and nationalism, Nationalism and Global Solidarities will be of strong interest to students and scholars of politics, sociology and international political economy. © 2007 James Goodman and Paul James, selection and editorial matter.

Since 2013 the Australian Government has transformed Australian overseas aid. Aid has been redirected, to serve national interests first, poverty reduction second. Aid is distributed directly by the Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade. Aid programs are geared to 'economic diplomacy' over aid effectiveness. Aid funds are dubbed 'aid investment', not 'Official Development Assistance'. There is no target to increase aid, and it is a regular source of budget cuts. Aid is at its lowest level in relation to national income since the early 1970s. As aid is discredited, re-channelled and cut, it is losing public support. The chapter argues new paradigm for aid is needed, grounded in human solidarity not national interest.

The "great globalization debate" began in the late 1980s with a series of proclamations as to the newness of the phenomenon. Ranging across multiple social science disciplines, globalization theory asserted that social relations were becoming increasingly deterritorialized (I-Ield, McGrew, & Perraton 1999). Subsequent revisions forced recognition of historical parallels, thus historicizing the claims, and allowed a rereading of the accounts, in terms of their discursive foundations, as globalist ideology. The debate continues, with investigations of post-globalism, in the aftermath of a more unilateralist world politics, as a state of affairs beyond globalization, rather than simply a throw-back to pre-globalist conditions.

Over the last ten years social movements of the marginalized have acquired remarkable public visibility and political traction. Movements based on sectors that were previously assumed to have been superseded, left behind by the march of history, have come to claim central significance in the unfolding drama of corporate-led globalization. Subsistence peasants, urban pOOf, indigenous peoples, domestic workers, migrants, and others, have gained a consciousness and capacity to act in the face of commodifYing pressures imposed through market globalism. In the process they have forged new strategic alignments, mounting counter-globalist challenges that have seriously disrupted globalist prescriptions. This paper addresses some of these themes, discussing how counter-globalist agency may now be generating new post-globalist ideological orientations.

Not surprisingly, there is much debate about types of nationalist movement, and their role in history. This essay seeks to conceptualize nationalism as a social movement, and explores its dynamics as a social formation with world historical force. As a social movement, nationalism is embedded in political contexts and can only be explained in relation to the resulting dynamics of contention (Vladisavljevec 2002:771). By understanding its dynamics we may then generate possibilities for the normative engagement sought after for instance by Joan Cocks, namely the ability to "probe how one might think, fee l and judge in order to act well in relation to nationalism" (Cocks 2002:S). Unfortunate ly, though, nationalism is not often explicitly conceptualized as a social movement. The field of social movement studies does address nationalism, but more on its peripheries than as a central problematic. There is a tendency to treat nationalism sui generis, to the detriment of both nationalism studies and social movement studies. The 2006 Sage Handbook oj Nations and Nationalism, for instance, does not address nationalism as a social movement (Delanty and Kumar 2006). Across the 74 articles in the four volume 2007 Routledge collection, Social Movements: C1itical Concepts in Sociology, there is one article devoted to nationalism (Jasper and Goodwin 2007).

Action by national citizens to assist humanitarian migrants has become a key issue in many high-income countries. Refugee solidarity of this sort is a realm of mobilization where cross-cultural and transnational imperatives are keenly felt-it is the place where national sentiment encounters global injustice, where worldwide human suffering is personalized and asserted in the face of national exclusion. Solidarity with refugees may be seen as the embodiment of reaching across global divides, as the crucible of transnational solidarity, where an inter-subjective impulse forces a move to a shared humanity. A key issue for such movements is how they relate with the national-level affiliations. In addressing refugee rights, movements have found themselves at a crossroads between humanitarian norms and national identity, between global passion and national sentiment, between borderless cosmopolitanism and reconstituted nationalism. Movements enacting refugee solidarity thus directly engage with what is perhaps the key issue facing transnational social movements-how to bridge levels of emotion and action, and how to embed cosmopolitanism.

© 2016 Informa UK Limited, trading as Taylor & Francis GroupThis article critically reflects on theoretical dilemmas of conceptualizing recent ideological shifts and contention among global transformative movements. Some studies conceptualize these movements as ideologically mature and coherent, while other inquiries highlight disorganization, fragmentation, disillusion, and dispute. The former line of argument suggests that underlying emerging global solidarities—to the extent they genuinely exist—there are some identifiably coherent cosmopolitanist, or globalist, values. The latter claim that existing global justice and transformative movements lack an effective ideological position for uniting the masses behind a global (political) project for transforming global capitalist social relations. By drawing upon an interpretive review of empirical studies conducted throughout the last decade, the article delineates four modalities, defined in terms of their orientations toward cosmopolitanist values. Among these modalities is a new and promising one, termed here as 'transversal cosmopolitanist' ('transversal' here understood as a process verb, indicating a new form of cosmopolitanist praxis). This approach assumes the possibility of creating a common ground for fruitful dialogue, constructive collective learning, progressive hybridization, and active political cooperation among diverse identities and ideological visions of contemporary global transformative movements, against existing capitalist social relations and structures of domination.

Governments in both over-developed and under-developed countries are forced to square the circle between climate crisis and energy policy. Across these contexts the policy imperative to reduce greenhouse gas emissions cascades into energy policy, and into wider fields of social and political life. The article investigates this process, advancing the concept of a 'climate dialectic' in policy change. From this perspective, the article develops a critique of climate policies as they have emerged in Germany and India. This positions Germany, a high-income post-industrial society, with India, a low-income industrialising country. Key climate and energy initiatives from each country are compared and discussed in terms of a common effort at expanded development opportunities. In this respect, with the key objective of maintaining 'growth as usual', the persistence of coal-fired power and coal extraction becomes highly politicised. Energy policies are found to be increasingly embedded in the wider 'climate dialectic', forcing new, more transformative possibilities onto the agenda.

Globalised neo-liberalism has produced multiple crises, social, ecological, political. In the past, crises of global order have generated large-scale social transformations, and the current crises likewise hold a transformative promise. Elite strategies, framed as crisis management, seek to exploit crisis for deepened neoliberalism. The failure of elite policy to address the causes of crisis creates new forms of politicisation. Social movements become a crucial barometer, in signalling both the demise and rise of political formations and programs. Experiments in movement strategy gain greater significance, as do contending elite efforts at repressing, managing or displacing the fall-out. In this Special Issue we investigate both management and movements in the face of crisis, taking crisis and unanticipated consequences as a normal state-of-play. The book enquires into the winners and losers from crisis, and investigates the movement-management nexus as it unfolds in particular localities as well as in broader contexts. The Special Issue deals with pressing conflicts, and produces a range of theoretical insights: the ubiquity of crisis is seen as not only a hallmark of social life, but a way into a different kind of social analysis.

In 2005, the United Nations reinterpreted its charter to facilitate humanitarian intervention, defining military action to prevent serious human rights abuses as a legitimate means of maintaining international peace and security. Under circumstances of `genocide, ethnic cleansing and other such crimes against humanity, states have a `responsibility to protect the victims and, if required, to use military means to do so. This new state responsibility is a response to new asymmetries in the exercise of sovereign power worldwide. In theory, it imposes new conditions on the exercise of state sovereignty that extend the principle of collective security beyond states to include all people. In practice, it gives those with the capacity to intervene, namely the dominant powers, the responsibility to intervene in the affairs of weaker `failing states. In this article, I use official texts to explore this new humanitarian collective security. Drawing on a range of accounts, including the Australian experience of intervention in East Timor, I argue that the grounds for humanitarian intervention lie as much in the defence of order as in the pursuit of justice. Dominant states assert their shared vulnerability and justify intervention as pre-empting presumed threats; they thus recruit humanitarianism for state security. Humanitarianism, however, is not so easily contained. As military practice collides with normative rhetoric, deep contradictions emerge between order and justice. Normative claims implode and spill over, feeding alternative humanitarianisms founded on mutuality and solidarity. The disordering orderjustice dialectic can thereby prefigure reorderings beyond hegemonism.

The transnational capitalist class is using the global ecological crisis to revive its failing financial system. Whereas environmental degradation was once seen as imposing a limit on economic accumulation, in the new `green economy, ecologism appears to become a rationale for extending market activity. The intensification of neoliberal extraction, and corresponding social and environmental debt, meets resistance from the global justice movement whose articulation of a counter position is increasingly sophisticated. This article examines this dialectic as played out at the UN Rio?+?20 Summit and parallel People's Summit in June 2012. The hegemonic `green economy formulation of corporations, multilateral agencies, unions, and big NGOs is contained in a document known as The Future We Want. A counter-hegemonic document entitled Another Future is Possible, facilitated by the World Social Forum, spells out an alternative route to global justice and environmental sustainabilitya `bio-civilisation. In neo-Gramscian terms, a war of position is occurring between two `transnational historic blocs around divergent social visions

The article explores the interaction between legal and political strategy in producing social change. It centres on a long-running dispute in Australia over whether charities can have a dominant political purpose. The focus is on the strategising of the small activist charity that successfully pursued the case over a five-year period. As an 'insider' account, the article charts the in-practice process of translating activisms across legal and political fields. With a stress on contingency and agency, the account affirms a 'politics of rights' approach to legal activism. It shows how the case opened-up new grounds for political contestation, and as such offered prospects for 'non-reformist reform'. It also demonstrates how this occurred more by strategic engagement with unintended effects, than necessarily by design.

Theorisations of global governance invariably conceive of it as bringing order to disorder, whether by increasing the `density of interstate society, or by expressing the leverage of global civil society. This paper seeks to invert the frame, and to take seriously the active disordering of governance, as a generative challenge, that creates new justice claims, and opens-up new fields of public deliberation. Global climate governance is a particularly powerful context in which to track these dynamics. Climate change imposes its own pace of policy reform, forcing new imperatives; it also imposes its own remarkable scope, in terms of global reach and all-encompassing depth. The paper seeks-out generative disjunctures, where existing justice principles that underpin climate governance are challenged, disestablished, and reordered. The paper explores these themes as a way of mapping contending and conflicting trajectories in the development of climate justice as a principle of governance. The disordering effects of climate governance, the social and political forces that arise out of them and their roles in producing contender principles and practices are highlighted. We may then arrive at a conceptualization of climate governance as a necessarily disorderly process, which addresses cumulative and unanticipated challenges of climate change through successive reorientations in its modus operandi. As such, climate governance may be enabled to proceed through and beyond immediate accommodations, to offer new possibilities grounded in new rules of the game that widen realms of engagement and more effectively apprehend the challenges posed.

Global warming poses very directly the question of human agency. In this video ethnography of climate agency we explore dimensions of subjectivity in climate activism. Through a longitudinal study we track activist strategising as a reflexive process of creating climate agency. Activist reflection is presented as a balance between involvement and detachment, and analysed drawing on videoed interviews and on our own participation in organisations and events. Visual artefacts are deployed to deepen insights into the interview process, and into the contexts for climate action. In terms of the analysis, there are three themes. First we look at trajectories how people come to identify with the climate movement and engage in its direct action wing. Second, we explore the hopes and fears of climate activists in the face of profound challenges. Third, we address political antidotes, and the role of direct action in precipitating large-scale systemic change. Across these themes there is much diversity and debate: what unifies is a common engagement in the broad field of direct climate action. This visual documentation helps us reflect on the conflicts and possibilities that thereby arise in contexts of climate activist praxis.

The paper assesses Australian aid programmes to Indonesia that are designed to reduce greenhouse gas emissions from deforestation. It is envisaged that reductions in deforestation will generate a stock of UN recognised carbon credits for Indonesia. The Australian government hopes to offset 50% of its own emissions by buying up international carbon credits, and has a direct interest in securing access to these exceptionally cheap Indonesian credits. Local organisations in Indonesia oppose this type of aid, and the offset schemes it promotes, which they say benefits high-emitting industrialised countries and promotes corporate interests over their livelihoods.

This article first explores the resulting political stagnation in debates about how to address climate change, drawing on local and international examples. Second it seeks to invigorate those debates by drawing on the social theory of environmental change. It focuses on three perspectives - eco-modernisation, eco-limits and eco-socialism, and discusses them in terms of what they prescribe for climate crisis. The article ends by outlining some themes for sustained engagement between ecology and socialism on the question climate crisis.

Casualization of teaching has become a major issue in Australian universities. In 1990 casuals delivered about a tenth of all university teaching. By 2008 between a third and a half of university teaching was being delivered by casuals. Quantitative studies have assessed the scale of casualization; this qualitative study addresses the experience of casual academics. It documents a sharpening class divide among academics, which has become institutionally embedded. It reports on interviews with casual academics examining how the divide is experienced, and how it may be addressed. Academic casuals report underpayment and compromised quality; they experience persistent income insecurity; and they find themselves voiceless in the workplace. These experiences are interpreted as aspects of class subordination, and possibilities for addressing them are discussed.

Political and social movements are both empowering and power-seeking: they seek both to mobilize civil society and overwhelm state institutions. As organisations they mobilize collective power, generating solidarities and transforming social structures. As such, political organisations both challenge power and exercise power. This article addresses organizational vehicles for political change in Australia, drawing out limits and possibilities. Three organizational forms are discussed - the political party, the non-government organization (NGO), and the social movement - in terms of their capacity and limits. The social solidarities and social structures that frame political organization are debated, highlighting the impact of political conflicts over ecological change. The article ends with a discussion of the proceeding four articles, drawing out shared themes and implications in terms of the relationships post-Howard, between the Australian state, political parties, NGOs and movements.

Justice globalism, as an ideological field, emerged to prominence from 2001 with the World Social Forum. It has offered powerful responses to market globalism, grounding alternatives as well as refusals. With the intensification of global warming, the question of climate justice is increasingly subsuming issues of global justice. Climate justice offers a distinct trajectory, with its own dilemmas and potentials. The article addresses these differences along six axes: scope, discourse, space, strategy, temporality, and agency. It is argued that climate justice is a totalising concern, that is scientifically measurable, that creates new leverage for late industrialisers, requires a proactive strategy, within a limited temporal horizon, embedded within an all-encompassing and radically challenging epistemology. As such climate justice addresses some of the limitations of global justice, while creating problems of its own. It is argued that emerging dynamics of climate justice are pre-figuring paradigmatic transition, forcing broad-scale transformations in the terms of political contestation.

Resource wealth in Australia is often presented as an asset, waiting to be exploited. Reflecting this, the recent resource boom is unquestioned indeed celebrated - as a great windfall for the Australian people. There is a broad-based assumption that Australia's resource-based economy successfully diversified in the later twentieth century, while retaining a foundation in agricultural exports, and latterly minerals. As the saying goes, the country rode to prosperity 'on a sheep's back', and then on the back of the mining sector. The recent resources boom may be seen as simply the latest phase in that process, pump-priming the country's twenty-first century infonnation-age service economy.

This paper uses Freirean theory and field studies of counter-globalist campaigns to add greater lucidity and normative deliberateness to our understanding of resistance to neo-liberal globalism. A difficult tension exists between complete submersion in movement struggles, versus a mythical position of objective analytic detachment. We sketch out the basis for a productive dialogue between these two competing pulls of political engagement and analytic objectivity. To do this, we draw from the writings of Paulo Freire, a Brazilian thinker famous for his theories of popular education. Freire's writings have not seriously entered academic studies of globalization, even though activists in the 'globalization-from-below' camp frequently draw on his words for inspiration. We seek to remedy this omission, and construct a dialogue between Freire and social movement struggles on four dualisms centred on epistemology, normativity, methodology and strategy. In each dualism, we outline how Freirean concepts can help redefine these binaries as productive tensions to be developed, rather than conflicts to be suppressed. These insights are not intended as a theoretical injunctive delivered from upon high, but are used in dialogue with examples from global justice campaigns in order to clarify what is already taking place on the ground. Identifying Freirean priorities can also encourage openings for more emancipatory approaches to critical globalization scholarship. While academics cannot engineer resistance to neo-liberal globalism from the top down, they can contribute their research energy and resources, becoming more actively engaged in the process of envisaging alternatives.

Globalism is a contested concept, but perhaps best understood as a spatial strategy, which disempowers those unable to transcend the fixity of place and social context. Under globalism fluidity becomes a key source of power, enabling the powerful to liquefy assets, to disembed, and thereby displace, political, social or ecological impacts.. Globalism thus signifies the capacity to exploit and dominate at distance, from the sanctity of corporate boardrooms, military briefings and media cutting rooms. The claim is to universal market, military and normative power, but the impact is of extended and deepened division. Centres of power appear more as islands, or enclaves, defined against the backwash effects of counter-globalism, and the logic of offensive defence. Counter movements gain traction as paradigmatic challengers, grounded in the aspiration to alternative ways of being.

Globalisation rhetoric has its origins in corporate strategy and in many ways is inseparable from free market neo-liberal ideology. Assertions about the inevitability of liberal capitalism, and the impossibility of an alternative, express the hegemony of neo-liberal globalisation. The outcome is an all-pervasive consumer culture and a strait-jacketing of the national state. But socio-economic or corporate globalisation is no monolith. As nationalist ideologies, state structures and inter-state bodies are re-geared to transnational interests, they can become selfdestructive.
