If the spectre of communism haunted Europe in the nineteenth and twentieth
centuries, other internationalisms now disturb the world. Globalization and its allied
‘discontents’ are global phenomena which provoke transnational anti-globalization
protest and resistance. Both the advocates of globalization and its opponents have
embraced the Internet and the digital world to communicate, exchange ideas and
information and to mobilize support. The growth of such global oppositional
movements and their inherent relationship with digital technologies pose a signiﬁcant
and paradigmatic challenge for the archival profession.
