Neoliberalism, Security, and the Afro-Arab International

(p.142) Chapter Five Neoliberalism, Security, and the Afro-Arab International
Geographies of Liberation

This chapter discusses how the transnationalizing of economies under U.S. tutelage at home and abroad, coupled with the global “war on terror” that knit together global and domestic security strategies, established the conditions of possibility for an Afro-Arab political imaginary called the Afro-Arab international. The term “Afro-Arab international” describes a political imaginary based on confronting the American era of neoliberal reforms based in privatization and security. The chapter describes the Afro-Arab international as it was initially formed in the 2001 UN World Conference against Racism, Racial Discrimination, Xenophobia, and Related Intolerance in Durban, South Africa, where Zionism was linked to racism; in the transnational solidarity that emerged in the wake of Hurricane Katrina; and in the more contemporary politics of Arab diasporic hip hop and slam poetry.

Keywords:   United States, war on terror, Afro-Arab political imaginary, neoliberalism, UN conference, Zionism, racism, Hurricane Katrina, diasporic hip hop, slam poetry
