    This book charts the way towards a better, repurposed globalization, which it calls ‘reglobalization’, and shows how this can be built, incrementally but realistically, via reforms to the partial and fragile existing structures of global governance.

    In making this argument, the book firmly rejects the new fashion for a politics of deglobalization, which has appeared of late in both left-wing and right-wing variants. Instead, it suggests that a reformed Group of 20 (G20), for all its current inadequacies, can still provide the critical coordinating function that the management of a process of reglobalization requires. The book argues that globalization is too important to be lost; rather, it needs to be saved from its capture by neoliberalism and rebuilt around different values for a post-neoliberal era. The emergence of global pandemic as an issue only goes to emphasise the necessity, importance and urgency of the reglobalization project.

    Reglobalization is essential reading for everybody living in the era of globalization, which is all of us, and worried about its many economic, social and political problems, which is a growing number of us.

    The chapters in this book were originally published in the journal Globalizations.

    "Reglobalization is a timely and trenchant intervention in contemporary debates about the challenges and possibilities of building a more humane form of globalization. Bishop and Payne have put together a first-class line-up of scholars who explore the many different ways in which we could and must move beyond the neoliberal form of globalization that is so clearly failing us today without giving up on the more progressive possibilities of a genuinely global political and economic way of life."

    "As globalization retreats, Reglobalization not only accounts for its pathologies, but, more importantly, charts potential trajectories out of its crisis. Reminding readers that its current form is not given, the book issues a rallying cry to save globalization by going beyond its neoliberal nature. Surveying a wide range of global issues, including tax, inequality, trade, climate and migration, the authors lay out a comprehensive blueprint for a re-embedded, post-neoliberal reglobalization. This book will be essential reading for those looking to save globalization from itself before it is too late."

    "Seeking to separate its discussion from the policies and practices of neoliberalism, this important and compelling book asks us to rethink the case for globalization. It looks toward future possibilities, reimagining globalization in terms of its progressive potential in a post-neoliberal context. As the diverse chapters make clear, ‘re-globalization’ is no easy task; but it is a project that serves to reanimate debates about the ‘global’ within International Political Economy, one that recognises how scholarship has an active role to play in rethinking, reimagining and reforming the global economic order."
