Chapter 23: ‘Pan-Islamism’ as a form of ‘alter-globalism’? Hizb Ut-Tahrir and the Islamic Khilafah State

Bruno De Cordier

Subjects: development studies, development studies


Development as well as conflict are intrinsically linked to past and ongoing processes of globalization, and to attempts by different centres and actors to maximize their space and position in the reality of globalization, and steer the social and economic changes and opportunities that globalization brings.1 The inevitable collision of interests, goals and norms and values therein leads to various forms of contestation of globalization or at least of certain of its impacts and directions that it is taking. What is commonly known as the anti-globalization movement – but has been more adequately called ‘alter- globalism’ for a number of years – for instance, typically opposes globalization dominated or felt to be dominated by neo-liberal capitalism and development models, international financial institutions, transnational corporations, military interventions, and cultural and governance Westernization, all of which further consolidate the domination of OECD economies and centres of power to the detriment of the global periphery.
